ANIKA NONI ROSE
TYLER PERRYS UPCOMING FILM "FOR COLORED GIRLS" IS SET TO BE RELEASED NOVEMBER 5, 2010. THE FILM IS AN ADAPTION OF THE 1975 STAGE PLAY "FOR COLORED GIRLS WHO HAVE CONSIDERED SUICIDE WHEN THE RAINBOW IS ENUF." THE MOVIE WAS ORIGINALLY SET TO COME OUT ON JANUARY 15, 2011 ON MLK BIRTHDAY BUT HAS BEEN MOVED UP TO BECOME A CONTENDER FOR THE OSCARS.
The play was originally produced in 1975 and was a poetic exploration of what it is to be of color and a female in this world. In the above photos we see all the ladies of the cast including Anika Noni Rose (as Yasmine), Kerry Washington (as Kelly), Janet Jackson (as Joanna), Kimberly Elise (as Crystal), Phylicia Rashad (as Gilda), Loretta Devine (as Juanita), and Thandie Newton (Tangie).
This will be the first film that Tyler Perry has directed that isn’t based on his own, original material. It will be interesting to see if he can pull it off. Good luck!
For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf is scheduled to hit theaters on November 5th.
