As if Knicks star Amar'e Stoudemire didn't have enough projects in the works, he is now getting into the movie business as a producer of a Hollywood horror flick, the New York Post reported Thursday.

The power forward, who is also a fashion designer and actor, is now in discussions with Relativity Media mogul Ryan Kavanaugh to executive produce "The Strangers 2," a sequel to the creepy 2008 chiller "The Strangers."

The original flick starred Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman as a couple staying in an isolated summer house who are terrorized by masked assailants. It was produced by Relativity's Rogue division with a mere $9 million budget and grossed more than $80 million worldwide.

Relativity Media finances and distributes films, including "Bridesmaids," "Limitless," "The Fighter" and "The Social Network."

The 6-foot-10 NBA star was linked to Kavanaugh through Stoudemire's agent, Happy Walters, who is president of Relativity's music division and of its sports-management firm, Rogue Sports.

Stoudemire is keeping busy in the offseason. He is heading to Los Angeles this week to film a cameo in "Entourage," and recently filmed a cameo in the Garry Marshall-directed comedy "New Year's Eve." He also is preparing to launch a women's clothing line with Rachel Roy in September.
