A source close to the production reportedly told S2S Magazine that a big screen film will come to theaters after the Lifetime biopic, will star singer B.Simone and be written by author Zane.

Jada Pinkett Smith recently revealed that changing her understanding of gender roles as they relate to marriage strengthened her 16-year union with Will Smith.
The "Gotham" star, 42, and the "Fresh Prince" actor's almost two decade-long marriage is somewhat of a rarity in Hollywood and subsequently it is often subject to media scrutiny. In a recent interview Jada revealed why their union has lasted so long in an industry where most marriages fail.
"Will, to me, encompasses everything. It's almost as if calling him 'my husband' is too small of a word for what he means in my life — and especially how I feel we, as women, identify the idea of a husband," she told Net-a-Porter's The Edit. more >>
"Calvary" (rated R) opens in theaters Friday, August 1 and offers the unpredictable story of a man abused by a priest in the Catholic Church and how his experience affects a so-called "good" priest in Ireland.
There's a hymn by William R. Newell, "At Calvary," that has the following refrain: "Mercy there was great and grace was free; pardon there was multiplied to me; there my burdened soul found liberty at Calvary." Many may be familiar with this hymn and perhaps the film brought it to mind, but there is no mercy or grace to be found in "Calvary."
The film focuses on the life of Father James, portrayed by Brendan Gleeson after he is threatened by a member of his congregation who confesses that he was sexually abused by a priest for five years and intends to kill James, a "good priest" in retribution. The intended assailant's identity is known only to Father James, but those who watch 'Calvary' may recognize the voice. more >>
"The Giver" debuted its first trailer this week, offering moviegoers a first look at the big screen adaptation of the beloved children's novel.
The book, written by Lois Lowry, was first published in 1993 and has since reached millions of readers across the U.S. The story follows a character named Jonas who is introduced to an elderly member of his community known as the Giver. He learns that the futuristic society he lives in has removed human emotion and wiped out all memory of it, and when the truth about the "real world" is exposed, he must work with the Giver to save those who they have learned to love.
Walden Media and The Weinstein Company are bringing "The Giver" to theaters everywhere on August 15. The film was made with help from the author, Lowry, who relinquished the rights to the book over 18 years ago. Since "The Giver" arrives on the wave of dystopian hit films such as "Divergent" and "The Hunger Games," Lowry pointed out her novel was the first of its kind at the time it was published. more >>
