images “She’s Gotta Have It” & Netflix is Giving It to Her and Everybody  Netflix has just ordered a series based on the movie that launched director Spike Lee’s illustrious career. Lee’s 1986 independent film “She’s Gotta Have It” tells the story of Brooklyn, NY artist Nola Darling and her three lovers and all the drama and self-discovery that surrounds her love life when she is forced to choose between them.  Lee became famous as much for how he made the movie as the movie itself… using his own credit cards to help finance the $175K needed to shoot the film in 12 days.  Lee inspired a new breed of directors like John Singleton and helped open the door to bringing true Black culture to Hollywood narratives. The new Netflix series will give the story a more contemporary take, but its relying on the original director to be at the show’s helm.  Lee will also serve as executive producer on the series which is slated to air 10 episodes that are 30 minutes long.

downloadA Question of Faith  Richard T. Jones is set to star in the faith based movie “A Question of Faith” that centers around a diverse community that is drawn together after a tragic accident forces them to unite in prayer to get through the ordeal.  Jones may find bits of this role calling on his real life beliefs…he’s been a key speaker twice in the Christian movement Jesus Culture which he used to encourage youth to pursue their dreams.  Jones’  lengthy big screen roles include “The Wood”, “Collateral”, “Why Did I Get Married?” and its sequel and last year’s “Concussion”. Jones will share the spotlight with C. Thomas Howell in his latest film which has already started principal photography in Atlanta.  “A Question of Faith” is scheduled for release in 2017.

download-2One Door Closes, Another Opens for “Suits” Gina Torres  For six years, Torres’ Jessica Pearson put the fashion swag in “Suits” and”B” in “boss” as head of her own law firm.  In the mid-season finale, fans got a bittersweet ending as Jessica finally decided that life had more to offer than big money cases and being number one. Torres’ personal reasons for leaving the show mirrors to some degree that of her on-camera alter ego.  The actress says after six years of traveling between her home in LA and shooting in Toronto, “My personal life needed to be tended to”. So now she’ll be able to give her family, husband  actor Lawrence Fishburne and their daughter, all the attention they deserve.  But that doesn’t mean Torres is retiring. She’s already signed on with ABC to join Shonda Rhimes’ “The Catch” when it returns for its second season next year.  Torres’ role on “Suits” gave audiences a glimpse of a strong, brilliant, successful woman of color carving her own niche in a male dominated industry a character that the actress says “…in terms of an example of how a woman in power could function, I’m very proud of what I put out there.”  Fortunately, Torres departure story of running off to Chicago with her love interest doesn’t close the door completely on “Jessica” possibly returning one day.

For this week in Black Hollywood, that’s a wrap!

    After I originally left a comment I seem to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I receive four emails with the exact same comment.
    There has to be a way you can remove me from that service? Appreciate it!
