Master P Headed To Jail For Next Film

He may be out of the NBA, but Master P is not of work.

Word has come that Master P will executive produce, co-direct, and star in the prison film, "Lock Down."

Written by Preston A. Whitmore II, whose previous credits include "Fled" and "The Walking Dead," the film depicts the lives of three wrongly imprisoned inmates whose friendship deteriorates behind bars.

"I want the statement of this film to be that prison is not a place where anyone wants to be," Master P said in a statement trumpeting the film.

This will, of course, not be P's first turn in front o the camera. The rapper and music mogul has previously starred in "I Got The Hook-Up" and will be featured in the upcoming film "Foolish," to be released in April.

As for "Lock Down," P's co-director has yet to be named, but the film is scheduled to start shooting in late April in northern California and Los Angeles.

The film will be released via Master P's No Limit Films and Palm Pictures and its No Limit

soundtrack will also be produced and arranged by P.
