Jennifer Hudson and Alicia Keys to star in new movie, "The Secret Lives of Bees"
Oscar-winner Jennifer Hudson has signed to star in a movie adaptation of Sue Monk Kidd's acclaimed 2003 novel "The Secret Life of Bees."
Hudson, who won an Oscar for "Dreamgirls", will play the friend of the film's central character, a 14-year-old girl who runs away from her abusive father and is taken in by a trio of bee-keeping sisters.
Queen Latifah and British actress Sophie Okonedo, nominated for an Academy Award in 2005 for "Hotel Rwanda" would play two of the sisters, while singer-actress Alicia Keys will play the third.
The release date of the film is set to be October 15th. I'm really looking forward to this one... make sure you all check it out!
