OMG! I DAMN NEAR HAD A HEART ATTACK READING THIS! THIS WAS FIRST REPORTED IN DEC. 05, NOW IT IS OFFICIAL! THEY HAVE THE SCRIPT, THE BUDGET, & A LOCATION TO START FILMING! THE ANTICIPATION BEHIND THIS WILL BECOME EPIC! NINA SIMONE (RIP) IS A LEGEND, A SOUL, SOUL, SOUL SINGER! SHE'S THE FIRST TO GIVE THAT RAW, COMPLEX EMOTION IN HER MUSIC!

Mary playing Nina has become a bit controversial, Nina's daughter doesn't approve of Mary playing Nina, simply because she would prefer an underground singer....FUCK THAT DRY PUSSY BITCH! MARY GOT THIS! SHE BETTER SIT HER RAISIN IN THE SUN ASS DOWN!

AFTER WATCHING THE HOOD LOVE VIDEO, MARYS ACTING IS ALMOST A GRADE...A MAJOR IMPROVEMENT!

I'M SO PROUD OF OUR GIRL! HERE COMES THE MOVIE AWARDS!
