Fox replays 'Game' at Sony Pics


NEW YORK -- Vivica A. Fox has signed to star in and produce "Three Can Play That Game," the sequel to her 2001 comedy "Two Can Play That Game," for Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisition Group.

Fox will reprise the role of Shante Smith, a relationship expert who uses her knowledge of the male psyche to help women get what they want. The cast also includes Jason Winston George ("What About Brian"), Jaszmin Lewis ("Barbershop 2: Back in Business"), Tony Rock ("Life Support") and Terri Vaughn ("Tyler Perry's Daddy's Little Girls").

Fox is producing director Mody Mod's film under her Foxy Brown Prods. banner with Will Packer and Rob Hardy of Rainforest Films. Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisition Group likely will release the feature as a straight-to-DVD title, though a theatrical release is possible, according to a spokesman. The original $6 million "Game" earned $22.2 million at the boxoffice.

Fox will appear in the upcoming film "Cover," an indie drama centering on a woman in a black family struggling with AIDS and faith issues. Her other credits include Miramax Films' two "Kill Bill" movies, Fox's "Soul Food" and the Lifetime series "1-800-MISSING."

Fox is repped by APA and manager Lita Richardson of L. Richardson Entertainment.
