Common and Queen Latifah

From the NYC set of Just Wright, a modern-day Cinderella tale where Latifah plays a female physical therapist who falls in love with a basketball player (Common) while helping him recover from a career-threatening injury.

Aside from headlining the project, the Grammy-winning rapper will also produce the movie under her Flavor Unit banner alongside Shakim Compere and Debra Martin Chase. The movie will be directed by Sanaa Hamri. The Fox Searchlight flim will be released next year.


  1. This sounds like a good movie. I think Queen Latifah needs to work on remaining feminine for these roles like she was in Last Holiday. She can be really beautiful when she wants to be. I also think she is a first rate actress.

  2. I just can't see the two of them together.

  3. Isn't Queen Latifah gay? Her in a romantic heterosexual relationship, seems rather unbelievable no matter how hollywood tries to spin it. Fortunately for her, most of the public doesn't know about her sexual preference and will be blissfully entertained. I like Dana, but I just can't see it. I had a hard enough time with her and LL Cool J, and I really liked Last Holiday.
