T.I. Inks Three-Picture Deal With Screen Gems

Atlanta rap star T.I. has inked a deal multi-picture deal with Screen Gems and will star in three upcoming high profile movies.

T.I., born Clifford Harris Jr., will star opposite of Matt Dillon and Idris Elba in the movie Bone Deep, a thriller based on a group of bank robbers who pull off one last daring bank heist.

According to Variety, Bone Deep will also be produced by T.I.’s Grand Hustle Entertainment, along with longtime partner Jason Geter.

The second movie is titled Boulevard and is currently in development, as is the third untitled movie starring.

The news comes amidst a flurry of business moves T.I. is making as he serves 1,000 hours of community service and prepares for a one-year prison sentence for possessing unregistered machine guns and silencers.

He was arrested after an undercover agent caught him purchasing the weapons shortly before an appearance at last year’s BET Hip-Hop Awards.

T.I. will also star in his own upcoming untitled reality series on MTV, which documents the rapper’s life before he begins his prison sentence and releases his album Paper Trail.
