Mariah Makes Movie Comeback...Don't Scream!

Posted by Melanie McKane on February 28, 2006 10:54 PM |

Mariah Carey photo Mariah Carey is set to make her movie comeback later this year, undeterred by the spectacular flop of her last high-profile film, "Glitter".

The R&B diva is hoping her acting career will be as successful as her recent musical comeback with "The Emancipation of Mimi" album, which has won practically every music award possible.

She'll star in the independent drama, "Tennessee", about a family hit by a crisis. Mariah will play a waitress who sets off with two brothers to find their estranged father, in a bid to save their younger sibling who is dying from leukemia.

The film's Producer Lee Daniels, who produced the Oscar-winning "Monster's Ball", said he chose to cast the "We Belong Together" singer after seeing her in 2002's "WiseGirls".

"I never saw Glitter, but I liked her work in the other film," he says. "Because this character is interracial and struggles with all sorts of issues because of that, I thought she was perfect."

Mariah will start shooting the movie in the spring.

Am I missing something?? Wasn't Janet up for this role acting along side Mac Culkin?? Gees, nothing against Mariah but Janet has been having such a ruff run of it lately!!
I guess that it is safe to say that there will NOT be a Janet/Mariah collaboration on Ms. Jackson's upcoming cd project due out spring '06. (Ooops!)
Hmm, I wonder how Jermaine is handling all of this?
