Actress Paula Patton landed a role in the upcoming Mission Impossible sequel. According to Deadline.com, the Precious actress will be playing a young operative who works with Ethan Hunt (Tom Cruise’s character). Oddly, the film will not be called Mission: Impossible 4. No word on what the possible title may be. The movie will be directed by Brad Bird and will begin filming in the Fall.
Director and actor Tyler Perry will be releasing a new film For Colored Girls on November 5th of this year instead of on MLK weekend in 2011 . Perry’s new release date will put the film in a position to be considered for year-end awards. The cast will include Janet Jackson, Whoopi Goldberg, Loretta Devine, Anika Noni Rose, Thandie Newton, Kimberly Elise, Kerry Washington, Phylicia Rashad, Macy Gray, Tessa Thompson, Michael Ealy, Hill Harper, Khalil Kain, Omari Hardwick and Richard Lawson. Perry’s film will be based on Ntozake Shange’s award-winning 1975 stage play titled ‘For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf.’
