    Janet Jackson is becoming a movie producer. The singer/dancer/actress has signed a production deal with Lionsgate to select, develop and produce feature films for the independent studio, according to The Hollywood Reporter. This is Miss Jackson's first attempt at producing films, even though she is a triple threat who has acted in films and on TV throughout her career. Hello, does anyone remember her turn as abused child Penny in Good Times?

    "Many people forget I started out as an actor," Jackson told THR. "I have been fortunate to work in the film industry, though not as much as I would like. I have a passion for storytelling, and have been doing it through my music for some time."

    Jackson has starred in a few Lionsgate Films, so this deal is a logical step for her.

    Are you excited about the prospect of Janet Jackson-produced films? Who is your favorite Jackson? I am gonna go with LaToya, personally.
