Chris "Ludacris" Bridges is in talks to star in and produce in the Damon 'Coke' Daniels-directed comedy titled Parking Lot Pimpin' or "what happens after leaving the club."

According to moviehole.com, the film, written by Daniels and Jaleel White (Family Matters) centers around Walt, played by Luda, "a young man who, following a nasty break-up, teams up with his slick buddy, Dez, for a night on the town after a nasty break-up." Dez attempts teaching Walter the game of "parking lot pimping" - waiting in the parking lot outside a nightclub, most likely next to a rented luxurious car, in order to "holler" at female club goers exiting the premises. However, everyone in the town, including Walt, end up seeing through Dez and his "cheap scams."

Parking Lot Pimpin' is set to begin shooting in April. It will be co-produced by Ludacris’ Disturbing Tha Peace company and Hoody Allan Productions.

Well, I can't say I'm thrilled. It doesn't sound very promising. I have a feeling Ludacris' career could go in a different direction after this. But, what do I know!

Luda was last seen in the Gary Marshall's critically-panned ensemble romantic comedy New Years Eve.

    Jaleel's gonna bring this up/promote this during his time on "Dancing With The Stars," I'd guess. Hmph.

    Even Lil Romeo and Bow Wow are getting too old for this Kid N Play, teenybop-sounding movie. Come on now, Luda!

    If a a movie has "pimp" or "pimpin'" I'll skip it.

    This has enormous hot garbage potential.

    Yeah, can't say I m looking forward to this. From area codes to park lot pimping... Ain't Luda way too old to be playing this ignorant roles?

    Oh goody! Another NAACP image award coming up!

    LOL@Turner! I saw the casting breakdown a month ago, and was rolling my eyes at all the different stereotypes. Why is everyone hiring the Asian guy to speak like he's from the hood? Good grief. Black people are not ready to have their own film industry, I don't care what anybody says.

    @Turner - So true! Since he's also producing...I'm sensing multiple award-winner!

    Ludacris has gotten some pretty decent roles in movies- CRASH, NO STRINGS ATTACHED, FAST & THE FURIOUS. What is this?? This is so not the step in the right direction...
