Roll Bounce: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Malcolm Lee's roller-skating comedy Roll Bounce is moving forward with a cast that includes Chi McBride, Bow Wow, Nick Cannon, Khleo Thomas, Mike Epps, Meagan Good and Rick Gonzalez.

The Fox Searchlight/Fox 2000 co-production is due to start lensing June 28 in Chicago with State Street Pictures producing. From a script by Norman Vance Jr., the late '70s-inspired coming-of-age comedy centers on a time when roller skating was a way of life.

X (Bow Wow) and his pals rule supreme at their local roller-skating rink, but when the doors close, the boys venture into foreign territory -- uptown's Sweetwater Roller Rink, complete with over-the-top skaters and beautiful girls. Through his preparation for the showdown of the season, X manages to find himself and also help his dad (McBride) get back on track. Brandon Jackson, Marcus Paulk and Jurnee Smollett round out the cast.
