Janelle Monae has earned a starring role in a top secret movie set to be produced by filmmakers with roots in social activism.
It’s been confirmed that the multi-hyphenate star will appear as lead in the as yet untitled Lionsgate flick byGerard Bush and Christopher Renz.
Renown for their work in their work across a variety of mediums, the pair have collaborated with the Martin Luther King Foundation, Jay-Z and Harry Belafonte on socially potent and provocative projects in the past.
Its plot, title, due date and cast remain carefully guarded. But it’s being touted as a top priori for the studio.
The venture comes on the heels of a string of major movie moments for Monae, including ‘Hidden Figures’ and ‘Moonlight.’ She’s also on-board for the upcoming Harriet Tubman biopic.
Having just been nominated for Album of the Year at the Grammys, it’s safe to say that the intergalactic one is winning across the board!
