Nick Cannon is the man we usually see infront of the lens in motion picture films. Today the New York Post reports that he will be taking a spot behind the camera and directing his first film.

Nick will be doing the film, which doesn't have a title yet, with Lionsgate in the spring. He described the film to Bleu magazine at a party honoring him as "Man of the Year" that it would be "today’s version of ‘House Party.’ ” “[I’m] taking a lot of the young hip-hop acts of today and putting them in a movie with a bunch of comedians, make something happen there.”

"House Party" in 2012? Sounds like a good idea, lets hope he can top the originals.
