Lil' Romeo to strip on big screen

Romeo Miller, aka Lil' Romeo, has signed up to star in urban stripper drama Chocolate City.

The rapper and actor will play a young college student who takes a job as an exotic dancer to earn some extra money, Deadline reported

Newcomer Eurika Pratts will play his girlfriend, and the film sees their relationship put to the test by his risque work.

Michael Jai White and Tyson Beckford are already signed up to play the club owner and former star performer who lure Romeo's character into the world of male stripping.

The indie project from writer-director Jean Claude LaMarre is being pitched as an urban version of Channing Tatum and Steven Soderbergh's box office hit Magic Mike.

No Limit rapper Romeo starred in his own Nickelodeon show Romeo! for three seasons and his previous film credits include dance hit Honey.
