Robin Thicke, Wife Team For Urban Drama

Billboard reports that Robin Thicke is in negotiations to write his first film score for the urban drama This Wednesday, with wife Paula Patton attached to star as a female pimp. Patton, known for lead roles opposite Denzel Washington in Deja Vu and OutKast’s Andre Benjamin in 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.
