Birdman is also reported to be involved with the soundtrack.

Nick Cannon and Chris Brown are aboard the star of the next women's basketball on the street the movie She Ball, according to Variety.

Cannon – who is currently gearing up to launch Nickelodeon Lip Sync Battle Shorties at the beginning of 2018 – is set to write, direct and produce the indie movie, which also star Cedric the Entertainer, Evan Ross, and Rebecca De Mornay.

Also involved is the Cash Money Records co-CEO Birdman, who will help the Cannon with the soundtrack.

The film, per Variety, "follows the love for the game through the struggles of Avery Watts, played by the Cannon, which features the baddest of the women's outdoor league in the city to help save the troubled Inglewood Community Centre, which he manages, all the while trying to raise his seven year old daughter."

In an attempt to improve the film's authenticity, Her Ball is set based on the real life of the athletes of the Women's National Basketball Association, baseball, and the Basketball Beauties of the League.
