According to published reports, the “Basketball Wives” franchise is set to get even bigger. So big in fact that a feature film based on the reality show has already been picked up by Fox Searchlight.
The project, which is being financed by Tracey Edmonds’ Our Stories production company, is very The Game-esque, in that it centers around the life of a young woman who gives up her dreams and aspirations to follow her baller boyfriend who gets drafted into the pros.
According to Tracey “The beauty of a feature film is that we’ll have the ability to dig much deeper into the stories and characters that come from this very colorful world and create a very juicy action packed narrative,” she told Variety.
So there you have it, despite all the bad press Shaunie and the gang have gotten over the last few weeks, when it all comes right down to it, people keep tuning in, ratings keep going up and Shaunie keeps laughing all the way to the bank.
