A VH1 original movie, “Drumline: A New Beat” will premiere on VH1 this fall. Starring Alexandra Shipp and LeToya Luckett, the highly anticipated sequel promises to capture the sound and spirit of the first “Drumline.”
Nick Cannon is the executive producer of the sequel and also makes a cameo, playing his character from the first film, Devon Miles.
Here is what Nick Cannon had to share about the sequel in a statement released by VH1.
“DRUMLINE was not just a successful film; it was a cultural happening. Even though it was released over a decade ago, I am constantly approached by people on the street who tell me how much of an impact it made on them. As a producer, my thought was, ‘How do we create an updated version that would translate to today’s audience and still feel fresh and original?’ Adding a female lead character really makes sense and VH1 is the perfect network to partner with on this modernized take on what is considered a unique and classic film experience. ”
