Ishawna will be getting her acting chops on in an upcoming movie about the culture.
Ishawna is best known for her raunchy music, but now we will see her in a different role as Ms. Legendary the actress. Monty Green, CEO of Royalty and Respect Films, has confirmed with Urban Islandz that he cast the dancehall singer in a leading role in his upcoming film. Ishawna will star in the film alongside another dancehall artist whose name has not yet been revealed. Some sources are saying it’s Popcaan, but that was never confirmed.
Green says he met the “Slippery When Wet” singer last year while scouting shooting locations for the movie and instantly felt like she was perfect for the role. The filmmaker didn’t divulge any details about the film except to say that production will begin later this year and the movie could be released as early as next year.
Ishawna is currently promoting her new single “Slippery When Wet” and “Instaboy” for which she recently released a music video.
