Yup there’s yet another biopic in the works. This time Mary J Blige has confirmed she is still preparing to play Nina Simone in a biopic “Nina”. (It’s a working title.) The film will be based on Simone’s own book “I Put a Spell on You”. The book focuses on the relationship with her assistant Clifton Henderson.
Nina was such a fascinating woman. The movie should be interesting if all the pieces fall into place.
Turns out this role is not the only acting Mary is getting into these days. Check the article on Black Voices to see what other projects Blige has in the works.
