It’s been a while since we’ve gotten new music from Keri Hilson, but it looks like she’s coming back. But this time, it’s through acting roles.

Shared on Snapchat, the 33-year-old revealed that she’d be in a film with actor Christian Keyes. “I guess he didn’t drain all my energy…” she captions the Snap with, a nod to him being her leading man for her first single “Energy” back in 2009.

Keyes confirmed the news with an Instagram post of the Snap. “Filming with @kerihilson yesterday for a really great movie with an incredible cast,” he says. “I will give more details about the project when I’m allowed to… haven’t worked with her since playing the lead in her #Energy #MusicVideo #GoodPeople”

The last time we saw Keri-baby acting was in Think Like A Man, as Terrence J’s date. We can’t forget the hilarious scene with Jenifer Lewis as his clingy mother!

In addition to this project with Keyes, Hilson is also set to star in The 10th Date, which follows “four friends at different life stages in their search for love.” As reported by MadameNoire, Hilson stars alongside Meagan Good, Kelly Rowland, Cat Deeley, and Brandon T. Jackson.

Keyes is currently on Bounce TV’s Saints & Sinners series, where he plays Levi Sterling. But he’s also set to star in two films next year.
