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 "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."
