Elliot, a five-time Grammy Award winner, will play herself in the as-yet-titled film, which is still in the development stages, according to a studio spokeswoman. The Virgina native began her career as a member of the group Sista, but went solo after a deal with Jodeci member Devante Swing fell through. She eventually hooked up with Timbaland and went on to chalk up several hit songs and sell millions of records worldwide.
