Ja Rule And Adrienne Bailon Star In ‘I’m In Love With A Church Girl’ (Trailer)

As the former breadwinner of Irv Gotti’s musical clan Murder Inc., rapper Ja Rule takes the street mentality to the big screen in the upcoming flick I’m In Love With A Church Girl. While production for the action/ crime thriller began in 2010, it’s the first semblance of work by Jeffrey Atkins post-prison. The plot may read like the perfect video treatment for a Ja and Ashanti reunion collabo: “Inspired by a true story, a successful entrepreneur haunted by a criminal past finds faith and redemption when God puts a woman in his life,” but the Queens MC holds his own as Miles Montego who tries to thwart the thug life in the name of love when he meets a church-going dime played by Adrienne Bailon. Stephen Baldwin, Vincent Pastore, Michael Madsen and T-Bone also star. Peep the official trailer above. I’m In Love With A Church Girl hits theaters Oct. 18.
