Ne-Yo Penning Movie Script

Ne-Yo is planning a new movie and he's just getting the hang of scriptwriting.

(AllHipHop News) R&B star Ne-Yo wants to move into filNe-Yommaking and has started penning a movie script.

In addition to his career as a recording artist, Ne-Yo has a number of acting credits to his name and played himself in hit 2017 comedy "Girls Trip."

Now, Ne-Yo has revealed that he wants to move behind the camera by directing and writing and has already begun to realize his ambition by starting work on a film script.

"I want to get more into the TV and film space, maybe not in front of the camera," he said. "I want to direct and write. I have started writing a movie."

However, Ne-Yo did not reveal his movie's subject matter and confessed that he's not quite got the hang of screenwriting yet - as he has found it requires very different skills to telling a story in a short pop song.

"I'm not totally confident how good it is yet, as I'm still learning," the 38-year-old explained. "There's a major difference with writing a story in three minutes versus a story you spend an hour to two watching - there's a lot more detail."

And if things don't pan out for the soul star in Hollywood, he can always fall back on his music career. He will soon release Good Man, a new track that is dedicated to the #MeToo anti-sexual harassment campaign and features artists Stefflon Don and Bebe Rexha.

Talking about how the movement has inspired him, he added, "It's time for me to put a spotlight back on what chivalrous values are and why we've lost them and what they're supposed to be."

Good Man is set to be released on June 8.
