Could Vh1’s ‘Basketball Wives’ be in the talks of a movie?! The answer is YES. Shaunie O’Neal has recruited ‘Jumping The Broom’ creator, Tracey Edmonds to help bring the once a week drama filled show to the big screen. Edmonds is said to have chosen Elizabeth Hunter to write the script for the untitled project.When Shaunie pitched the idea to Fox Searchlight of course they hopped on board!
The movie will center around a young woman who follows her boyfriend to Miami after he gets drafted into the NBA. Thrust into the world of professional sports, she meets the other players’ wives and learns from their trials and tribulations. Pretty similar to Shaunie’s life right?
Tell us what you think! Would you go see this movie?
