Hey Guys –
I love, love, love Ms. Queen Latifah – she is definitely a star! She has done everything in the entertainment industry from acting, rapping, singing, executive producing, talk show host, etc. She is definitely a force to be reckoned with and she is building her own Empire!
Queen will star in an upcoming biopic film, by HBO Films, ‘Bessie.’ According to the HBO site, here is what the film is about:
“Queen Latifah stars as legendary blues singer Bessie Smith in this HBO Films presentation, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Dee Rees from a screenplay by Dee Rees and Christopher Cleveland & Bettina Gilois. With a story by Dee Rees and Horton Foote, the film focuses on Smith’s transformation from a struggling young singer into “The Empress of the Blues,” who became one of the most successful recording artists of the 1920s and is an enduring icon today. BESSIE also stars Michael Kenneth Williams, Khandi Alexander, Mike Epps, Tika Sumpter, Tory Kittles, Oliver Platt, Bryan Greenberg, with Charles S. Dutton and Mo’Nique.
