Mary's Acting Gig

Mary J. Blige as signed on to play jazz icon Nina Simone after years of rumours that she was the front-runner for the role. The film is currently titled "Nina" and is set to be directed by Cynthia Mort, who also wrote the script. The plot will revolve around Nina Simone's relationship later in life with her assistant Clifton Henderson. With a current budget of $10 million, the film is scheduled to begin shooting in France this September.
Mary hasn't done a lot of acting before so for her to be entrusted with such an iconic role is huge. Interested to see how this pans out for Ms. Mary.
