After blowing our minds in Dreamgirls, Jennifer Hudson seems to be landing more roles than Kate. Joining The Secret Life of Bees of Queen Latifah a month back, Hudson is now in negotiations to become part of Tyler Perry's the Family That Preys.
Jennifer Hudson for Tyler Perry's the Family the Preys
Hudson will join Sanaa Lathan, Kathy Bates, Alfre Woodard and Rockmond Dunbar in a production that is set to begin March 2nd.
Family That Preys focuses on two families from different sides of the tracks that become intimately involved in love and business. Tyler Perry will direct off a script he wrote.
Pic is Perry's sixth for Lionsgate. He scored his last hit with Why Did I Get Married? and will follow The Family That Preys by directing Madea Goes to Jail, based on his stage play. Lionsgate opens Perry's Meet the Browns on March 21.
