Tired of all of the cat fights, bottle-throwing, and epic cuss-outs? Well, that’s just too bad because it looks like Basketball Wives will be making the leap from TV to the silver screen.

According to Variety, Tracey Edmonds and Shaunie O’Neal have teamed up with Fox Searchlight to bring a Basketball Wives-inspired film to the big screen.

The fill will reportedly be written by Jumping the Broom co-writer Elizabeth Hunter and will center around a woman who follows her NBA baller boyfriend to Miami only to get caught up in the fast-paced world of professional sports. She’s befriended by the wives and girlfriends of her boo’s teammates and learns about the trials and tribulations of women in her new sisterhood.

Edmonds, whose production company was behind films like Soul Food and Hav Plenty, is excited about the project because it’ll allow viewers to get a more in-depth look into the lives of these women.

“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.

While we’ll have to wait for the script or the trailer to be released to see whether or not the film will focus on the worst parts of its Basketball Wives predecessor, if done correctly it could (and I’m being very hopeful here) be a good film.

What do you think? Will Tracey Edmonds be able to turn Basketball Wives into a good film or will we see more of the same?

    ‘Basketball Wives’ movie? I don’t even watch the show! If there is to be a movie, it will be straight-to-DVD anyway.

    Does anyone else notice the influx of spam comments on a lot of older articles?

    • Yes Dreaming, I posted as much yesterday on an older article.

    The absolute worst part is that I’m sure some wonderful scripts from up and coming filmmakers has ended up in the hands of Tracey Edmonds since the success of Soul Food and Hav Plenty (mild underground success) and this is what she has chosen.

      Precisely! It’s absurd!

    My first thought is NO I don’t want to see a Basketball Wives movie; but on second thought I’ll wait until the promos come out to decide.
