Need to know more about R&B singer/songwriter Ne-Yo? If all goes well, his life's story might be coming to a big screen near you soon.

The multi-talented star, who last month released his new album "Year of the Gentleman," says he's currently working on a film that is based on his life story that he would star in.

Comparing the project to Eminem's 2002 biopic "8 Mile," a hit film based inspired by the Detroit rapper's journey to the top of the hip hop game, Ne-Yo says that his flick is already in the works.


"We are putting together the (film) right now as we speak, as a matter of fact," the artist tells Rap-up.com. "The name of the movie is 'Venice Beach' and basically it's going to be my '8 Mile,' loosely based on (my) life, but not really."


Ne-Yo was last seen on screen in 2007's "Stomp the Yard."
