Eartha Kitt Biopic: Keesha Sharp To Star In & Produce Movie

Published: Wednesday 31st Oct 2018 by David

Eartha Kitt‘s life story is to be reborn.

Exciting news below…

The actress Keesha Sharp has put plans in place to star in and produce an Eartha biopic to honour the political activist’s life with help from the book ‘America’s Mistress: The Life and Times of Eartha Kitt.’

Sharp explained why she has decided to celebrate Eartha in an interview with ‘Deadline’...

Eartha Kitt was a force in the entertainment industry and an icon who opened doors for so many women, especially women of color during a time when it was not popular in America. Although I may have been compared to her in the past, I am passionate about bringing her story to life because everyone needs to know how incredible she was! People don’t mention her in the same conversation with the icons of Hollywood, but she belongs there. The biggest star at the time, Orson Welles, called her ‘the most exciting woman in the world’ for good reason. Her life was full of complexity, pain, and triumph, and I am thrilled to take on the challenge.

A number of movie studios are interested in supporting the picture and talks to find the right one are taking place. For this reason, a due date is yet to be locked in.

    How shady to not post a picture of her. I remember her from Girlfriends. She was dating William. Doesn’t look like her, but I think she can pull it off acting-wise.

      I was just thinking the same thing. I think Keesha Sharp has the perfect presence to play Eartha Kitt, but there is no physical resemblance.

    Thandie Newton should play Eartha. However, I like Keesha plus i’ve been dying for an Eartha movie because her story was soooo moving.
