AOL's Black Voices is reporting that Janet Jackson will star in Tyler Perry next film, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf.
The website says that last night at the New York City premiere of Why Did I Get Married Too?, Perry revealed the film's cast, which, in addition to Janet, will include Mariah Carey, Whoopi Goldberg, Phylicia Rashad, Jurnee Smollett, Kimberly Elise, Kerry Washington, and Macy Gray.
The film is based on Ntozake Shange's award-winning 1975 play consisting of a series of poems performed through a cast of nameless women. The poems deal with love, abandonment, rape, and abortion. It is scheduled to shoot in June in New York with a possible winter 2010/2011 release date.
If the report is true, this would be Janet's third film with Perry. I don't know it is one of those that sounds too good to be true. I will keep ya'll posted.
