Chart-topping R&B artist Robin Thicke is in talks to write his first film score for the urban drama This Wednesday, with wife Paula Patton attached to star as a female pimp.
Patton (Déjà Vu, Idlewild) will portray Wednesday, the “trick baby” of a pimp father and hooker mother. With her best friend’s support, she struggles to survive on the harsh streets of Philadelphia.
The feature from writer-director Christine Crokos is inspired by the true story of a female pimp in Atlanta. “Wednesday” will be expanded from Crokos’ 2001 short Heroine Helen, about the same character.
Shooting is expected to begin late this year in Philadelphia.
