Bobby Brown is working on scoring a movie deal.

The New Edition singer is sending around a script about his life to Hollywood directors in hopes of grabbing a deal.

The script, written by Bobby along with the help of Michael Pinckney, was originally penned in 2011 but was unsuccessful in picking up attention.

In the wake of former wife Whitney Houston’s tragic death, however,there has been a renewed interest in the film. Because it was written in 2011, the script only briefly covered the duo’s marriage and is now being reworked to include Whitney’s death.

Titled The Bad Boy Of R&B (The Bobby Brown Story),” the film is set to chronicle the trials and tribulations of Bobby’s life.  The synopsis describes “Sex, Drugs, Women and the Original Bad Boy of R&B, a toxic mix. The Bad Boy of R&B is a classic tale of R&B sensation Bobby Brown’s meteoric rise from humble beginnings in Boston to the top of the R&B and Pop charts. His struggle with drugs, alcohol, women and a troubled marriage is a rocky journey and an inspirational one. One of hope redemption and the power of the human spirit. Having already accomplished more as a teenager than most men in a lifetime, Bobby must now face the greatest challenge of his life . . .  .Take this emotional journey with the original Bad Boy of R&B as we fully exposes his faults contradictions in this in-depth story of his many triumphs, trials and tribulations. The film exposes Bobby’s darker side and puts his private demons on public display.”

According to Pinckney, the two hope that the story will be a similar, modernized version of Ray. — Jazmine Gray
