Shaunie O’Neal, ever the business woman, is looking to further expand the Basketball Wives brand with a movie about the life of an NBA wife. Variety reports that O’Neal has partnered with producer Tracey Edmonds produce a feature film that “centers around a young woman who follows her boyfriend to Miami after he gets drafted into the NBA. Thrust into the world of professional sports, she meets the other players’ wives and learns from their trials and tribulations.” Sounds familiar! But this story, unlike Basketball Wives, will be a fictional version of what we’ve gotten used to seeing on the show.
Edmonds, who produced Jumping The Broom, has also enlisted Broom screenwriter Elizabeth Hunter to write the film. Edmonds tweeted about the project “The film introduces new characters w rich story lines and although juicy and action packed, it’ll empower!” What do you think, are you Basketball Wives fans excited for the film??
