The Cast Is Coming Together For Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man

I hope this turns out well. Gabrielle it seems is trying to become the "Black Rom Com Queen" with a starring role in Tyler P’s Good Deeds and now this.  I have always liked Gabby, but it seems her personal life has become bigger than her career. Hopefully the moves she is making now will change that!

Colombiana 2011 trailer w/Zoe Saldana

Upcoming movie featuring one of my favorite actresses kicking ass and taking names! Only minus: Michael Vartan as the love interest. He's a little too blah for me. Regardless I will be supporting when it arrives in theatres.

Mara and Salim Ink Massive Deal w/ BET

The power duo of Salim and Mara Brock Akil are moving from the t v screen to the big screen with their reboot of Sparkle. The 1976 film which starred Irene Cara and Lonette McKee was a fictionalized account of a girl group reminiscent of the Supremes who rose to fame quickly but soon discovered that fame comes with a huge price.

Salim who has directed several episodes of his wife’s two series Girlfriends and The Game is making his directorial debut with the May release Jumping the Broom with Laz Alonso, Angela Bassett, and Paula Patton. This experience laid the foundation for Salim to get the reins on the Sparkle project for which Mara will write the script.

Their small screen success speaks volumes in regards to their talent, and I have high hopes for this film which also boasts Debra Martin Chase (The Preacher’s Wife and Cheetah Girls) as a producer. It will be released under the Akil Production Company banner.
