Recent BET Awards winner Chris Brown is in negotiations to star opposite T.I. and Matt Dillon in a flick called "Bone Deep." Brown will play a brother caught up in a heist ring in the Screen Gems thriller that will reportedly
start shooting sometime this fall.

"Bone Deep" would be the R&B sensation's third film. Brown made his debut in 2007's "Stomp the Yard" opposite Columbus Short, Meagan Good, Darrin Henson and Ne-Yo. Later that year he rocked the heck out of Donny Hathaway's in Preston Whitmore's holiday hit "This Christmas." Brown is also set to star in "Phenom," a sports drama also from Screen Gems.

If he plays it right the charismatic 19-year-old might just become the next big thing on the big screen. Hmm, could a romantic comedy starring Brown and his rumored girlfriend Rhianna be in the works, too?
