Just call him Mor P or Master Pheus.
Master P is developing a kids’ version of “The Matrix” called “The Fusion,” in which he will star as a Morpheus-like character.
“I’m like the wise man,” P said recently. “I’m gonna take this to another level, even though [Laurence] Fishburne is the man. I’m gonna take a little of his work, and take it to the next level.”
So who will play the Neo-like character? P’s son, Lil’ Romeo, of course.
“That’s gonna be high-tech, a lot of action and you’re gonna see us get our karate on for real,” P said.
“The Fusion” marks the fourth movie in the works for Master P and Romeo.
“Uncle P,” which is “like a family comedy,” according to P, is due in the fall (see “Big Stretch: Master P To Play Rap Entrepreneur In New Film” ), followed by “Shorty,” which he calls “a hip-hop ’E.T.’ ” (see “Shorty Phone Home: Master P Developing Sci-Fi Flick For Romeo” ). The father and son are shooting “Lil’ Romeo and Lil’ Juliet” this summer (see “Master P Bringing ’Lil’ Romeo And Lil’ Juliet’ To Big Screen” ).
P and Romeo are also filming the second season of their Nickelodeon sitcom “Romeo!,” which P said has been quite draining.
“Television is not like making records,” he said. “I wanna tell all you kids, do not try this at home, ’cause it’s hard. It takes a lot of hard work, a lot of practice, and a lot of different takes. You’ll never see that at home, but you know what, if you ever seen the reel, how long it takes to make a TV show, you’d be like, ’Wow, I’m about to get another job.’ ”
Although P has so many movies in the works, he insists his New No Limit Records is going strong.
The mogul is planning to up the exposure of his recently released Good Side/ Bad Side by releasing the Lil Jon-produced “Who Them Boys,” while Silkk the Shocker is nearly finished with an album that will feature P on the first single, “We Don’t Dance, We Bounce.”
“The New No Limit is in the building,” P said. “I got some new acts that I been working on: Afficial, Currensy. … It’s gonna be a hot year.”
Romeo is also in the studio and will soon release a single called “Just for You.”
“It’s for the girls,” P said. “Romeo, you know, he’s 14. He ’bout to get real wild with it these years. He’s getting bigger now; he’s playing basketball. They gonna be callin’ him Big Romeo in a minute.”
Along with movies and music, Master P is also releasing a line of watches called the Master Piece, and he has a new shoe design, the P. Miller Jumpoffs, in the works.
