Rihanna's Big Screen Debut

Rihanna is set to make her big screen debut in the movie adaptation of Iceberg Slim's novel "Mama Black Widow"!!!!! The film lists a big line up of other major stars including Kerry Washington, Anthony Anderson, Mos Def and Macy Gray, Brian J White and more.

Here is the IMBD synopsis: Mama Black Widow is the portrait of a black family's migration from the southern Mississippi cotton picking fields of the segregated south to the ghettoized black underworld of Chicago during the 1930's. The story follows Otis Tilson's (played by Brian J White) struggle to keep his family together as they navigate through a world of alcoholism, homosexuality, pimping, sexual deviation and racial degradation. Told in the gut level language of the original novel by Iceberg Slim, the family's journey is a harsh testament of lives lived on the margins of a racist and predatory world.

Rihanna will play a character named Carol, who in the book falls in love with the wrong type of man and its create tragic results. At this time, the movie doesn't have a release date but it is currently in production. From what I can tell by reading a review of the book, this story is amazing and the movie should be incredible!!!!!
