Zendaya is making a brilliant beeline for an Oscar with the creation of a groundbreaking new movie.
What it’s all about?
The true story of a white woman…who was actually black.
‘A White Lie’ is based on the life of Anita Hemmings, a woman of African-American descent who was able to pass as a white woman in the 19th century and bypass the intense racism and violence thrown at her darker-skinned relatives.
Zendaya is to portray her in the movie with the full support of Reese Witherspoon who is to produce it alongside the former Disney starlet, its writer Monica Beletsky and Karin Tanabe whose book ‘The Gilded Years’ will be used as a reference point for the thriller.
A due date is yet to be announced.
