Terrence Howard to Portray Nelson Mandela
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Terrence Howard will star alongside Jennifer Hudson in the upcoming film WINNIE. As stated in a previous story, WINNIE is about the former wife of Nelson Mandela and the trials she had to face while being married to the public figure. Her life was full of obstacles as well, including, being jailed for campaigning for her husband’s release, fighting against apartheid and a conviction of fraud. The film will be directed by Darrell Roodt and has an initial budget of $15 million dollars and will begin filming at the end of this month in South Africa.
If done well, this historical drama may be a serious contender during the Academy Award season and we may see Ms. Hudson with another gold statuette.
