Ashanti Lands New Movie Role


According to Shadow & Act, R n’ B singer Ashanti has signed on to star in the film adaptation of the stage musical “Stuck.”

Ashanti will star alongside “Breaking Bad” actor Giancarlo Espisito, as one of six New Yorkers stranded on a stalled New York City subway in the middle of a heatwave.

Michael Berry, who directed the stage play, will also direct the film version, and Ashanti has hinted at adding an original song or two to the score.

Ashanti was last seen starring in the Lifetime original movie “Christmas in the City.” She also did a short stint on “Army Wives,” before it was eventually canceled by the network.

Next up for Ashanti, the role of Preacher in the sci-fi drama “Mutant World,” set to debut next month on the USA network.
