R&B songstress Mary J. Blige is set to star as Nina Simone in Nina, a movie about singer, songwriter, pianist and civil rights activist Nina Simone. Cynthia Mort's script focuses on Simone's relationship with her assistant Clifton Henderson, who will be played by David Oyelowo, according to producers and financiers of the film.
Mort worked as a writer-producer on sit coms such as Roseanne and Will & Grace.
Do you think Blige is the best choice to play Simone? Think Queen Latifah could do the job?
