Zoe Saldana To Play Eartha Kitt In Biopic
I did my research on Ms. Kitt, and I must say she lived a very colorful life, a life tailor made for the big screen. Kitt grew up biracial and was born on a cotton plantation. She became a huge international star when she was blacklisted in America after voicing her opinions on the Vietnam War to Lady Bird Johnson. After bringing Johnson to tears at a luncheon , the then First Lady fled the room she was that upset. Ms. Kitt was also a linguist (she spoke in 4 languages and sang in 7).
This sounds like the perfect vehicle for someone like Taylor Hackford to direct who did a phenomenal job with Ray.
