Nick Cannon & Common Working On New Movie Projects
Common and Nick Cannon are taking an extended break from the recording studio to launch new film projects.
Nick Cannon will be making his directorial debut on a movie project with Lionsgate, which he describes as "today's version of House Party." The actor-rapper, who has spent plenty of time in front of the camera hosting America's Got Talent and MTV's Wild 'N Out, says to Page Six, “I’m taking a lot of the young hip hop acts of today and putting them in a movie with a bunch of comedians, make something happen there.”
Cannon's fellow rapper Common has landed himself another high-profile acting gig. The Hell on Wheels star announced at Sundance his new project Now You See Me, a thriller about a team of FBI agents tracking a team of illusionists who pull off bank heists during their performances and reward their audiences with the money.
