Vanessa Williams To Play In New Sci-Fi Movie / Set To Star In ‘Satan’s Sisters’

Published: Saturday 28th May 2016 by David

Vanessa Williams has bagged a leading role in a Science Fiction release!

Good news for the actress/singer below…

Williams is to star in ‘The Man From Earth: Holocene‘, the sequel to ‘The Man From Earth’ which will hit theatres in 2017.

Joining her for the ride is Sterling Knight and Akemi Look who will assist she and director Richard Schenkman to tell the tale.

Deadline adds:

The original film focused on John Oldman (Smith), a man who has lived for millennia, always moving on after ten years to hide his secret. The story told over the course of an intense evening conversation between Oldman and his acquaintances. Details about the sequel are being kept under wraps, but the term “Holocene” describes the historical period stretching from the end of the most recent ice age to the current day.

Williams’ role in the series follows her successful runs on the hit shows ‘Desperate Housewives’ and ‘Ugly Betty.’

That isn’t all.

For, she has signed up to star in the TV adaptation of Star Jones‘Satan’s Sisters.’

Loosely based on Jones’ experience on ABC’s ‘The View‘, the show will see Williams play the powerful yet insecure Maxine who is determined to retain her relevance on the talkshow ‘The Lunch Hour.’

    Say what you want about Vanessa Williams but one thing that can never be said is she does not keep a job because she stays on her grind collecting jobs and coins too.

    I love her. Definitely an under rated jem.
    Her song “save the best for last” brings back prom flashbacks.

    Ummmm…Okay, I guess. The first movie looks like one of those bad, low budget Sci-Fi channel movies. Let’s hope that the sequel has a bigger budget.
