Untitled Usher project: According to Variety, Ray writer James White has found his next project, a drama toplined by Usher Raymond, which he's writing for Dimension Films.

Singer-actor Raymond, aka Usher, will star in the coming-of-age pic about a kid from the streets who finds salvation through music.

"It's going to be a departure from what you've seen (Usher) do," White told Daily Variety. "It's going to be a really heavy drama that starts with him seeing life through a rose-colored lens and it becomes the wrong man at the wrong place at the wrong time."

While White said he didn't have a deadline for the project, he said he expected to get the first draft written quickly. "It's not going to be like Ray, which took me three years."
