Jesse Williams Takes on Search for Justice In “Till”  The heartbreaking story of Emmett Till heinous murder at the hands of racist has caught the attention of Hollywood heavyweights like Whoopi Goldberg, JayZ and Will Smith who want the world to know his story. The 14 year old was brutally beaten, mutilated and drowned after falsely being accused of offending a White woman.  Till’s death wasn’t the end of the story, but the beginning of the fight for justice for his mother  Mamie Till-Mobley.  Actor Jesse Williams is stepping behind the camera for his directorial debut in a film which follows Till’s mother’s crusade.  Williams says, “I’m honored to be directing the story of Mamie & Emmett: a tale of revolutionary defiance in the face of tremendous personal and public devastation,”  Williams continued saying the film is “An exploration of power and pulling back the curtain on cultural violence; of boyhood and maternity challenging America’s reflex to hide from itself; underdogs refusing to pretend that terror is freedom.”  According to entertainment news site Shadow and Act, “The Till family is said to be working with the production of the film, which will begin next summer.

Halle Berry On Board to Exec Produce “Boomerang” The Series Halle Berry the star we all know today was a fledgling actress back in 1992 and desperately looking for that big break.  Her third film put her in the orbit of stardom when she starred opposite Eddie Murphy as his love interest in the romcom “Boomerang”.  Murphy played womanizing, hotshot ad exec Marcus Graham who finally got his comeuppance when his boss (Robin Givens) played him like all the women he usually played. Even though critics called the film “predictable” and “imbalanced“, anything starring Eddie Murphy at that time was box office bank. The movie ranked #3 its opening weekend and grossed a total of $70 million domestically.  Murphy created the original idea behind the movie and now Berry is taking her co-star’s idea to the next level as she teams up with fellow actress/writer/producer Lena Waithe to bring the big screen movie to the small screen as a series.  The pitch synopsis says “the series will follow the lives of Jacqueline Boyer’s (Givens) son and Marcus (Murphy) and Angela Graham’s (Berry) daughter as they attempt to step out of their parents’ shadows and make a legacy of their own. ”  Waithe describes the project as “This is less of a reboot and more of a continuation of the original story. There’s no point in trying to remake a classic. It can’t be done. So, we want to create something fresh that speaks to a new generation.” Waithe will help co-write and produce the 10-episode series set to air on BET.

Stars Say ‘I Do” to “First Wives ClubReboot   Hey, if “Boomerang” can come back to audiences so can the comedy hit “The First Wives Club”.  The move to the small screen isn’t the only change for this re-boot…try a Black cast in the roles originally made famous by Bette Midler, Goldie Hawn and Diane Keaton.  The racebending roles will now star singer/actress Jill Scott, “Empire’s” Malik Yoba, and “Survivor’s Remorse” alum RonReaco Lee.  According to entertainment news site Deadline.com, “The First Wives Club series, like the movie that starred Diane Keaton, Bette Midler and Goldie Hawn, will be set in New York City. It follows Ari (Bathe), Bree (Buteau) and Hazel (Scott), who band together after their marriages fall apart and find strength in their sisterhood — and of course a little revenge.”  The 10 episode dramedy will start shooting this fall premiere on Paramount Network in 2019.

For this week’s look at some of your favorites Black stars in Hollywood, that’s a wrap!

    Today, I went to the beach front with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab
    inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go
    back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
