Paula Patton Sets Her Eyes on "This Wednesday"

Paula Patton to star in "This Wednesday"
Paula Patton plans to find out why "pimpin' ain't easy."

After the critical success of 2005's Hustle and Flow, Hollywood is getting underway on another pimp tale, but what separates this story from the pack, is its lead character: a woman. Paula Patton, of Idlewild and Deja Vu fame, has signed on as the lady for the job and her husband Robin Thicke, is reportedly in talks to help out.

NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - Chart-topping R&B artist Robin Thicke is in negotiations to write his first film score for the urban drama "This Wednesday," with wife Paula Patton attached to star as a female pimp.

The feature from writer-director Christine Crokos (The Seat Filler) is inspired by the true story of a female pimp in Atlanta. "Wednesday" will be expanded from Crokos' 2001 short "Heroine Helen," about the same character.


Depending on how the subject matter is handled, this film could be a real character study or just a real let-down, we're hoping for the former. But with early buzz and interest already generating, Wednesday's team is most likely on the ball. They may even be able to bring Lil Kim onto the project to pen the Oscar-nominated theme song, "It's Hard Out There For A Pimpstress".

Now THAT is a beautiful couple. Thicke is a very talented guy and she's a very beautiful woman. The kids will already have a genetic advantage at birth
