T.I. Scores Three-Picture Deal With Screen Gems

T.I.’s recent legal trouble apparently hasn’t tarnished his big screen cachet. According to Variety, the Atlanta rapper has just signed a deal with Screen Gems to star in three movies.

First up, Bone Deep, a drama in which Tip will share screen time with Idris Elba and Academy Award-nominee Matt Dillon. The film follows bank robbers who make a big score before being pulled into one last heist by a newly paroled accomplice. Tip is also scheduled to star in Boulevard, a drama presently in development. Details have yet to be revealed on the third picture.

T.I. made his acting debut in the Chris Robinson-directed ATL back in 2006 and had a brief role in last year’s American Gangster. He will have to squeeze his movie obligations into a scheduled already packed with 1,000 hours of community service he must perform leading up to his one-year prison sentence. The community work will be documented in a six-episode reality series on MTV. —Carl Chery
