Lenny Kravitz to make his feature-starring debut in ‘Push’November 14th, 2007 - 8:06 am ICT by admin
Geoffrey Fletcher has penned the script of the film and the production is just getting under way in New York.
The film is a co-production of Lee Daniels Entertainment and Smokewood Entertainment Group, with the latter financing.
The story of the movie centres on Clareece “Precious” Jones, an overweight, illiterate African-American teen in Harlem.
Just as she’s about to give birth to her second child, Jones is accepted into an alternative school where a teacher, played by Patton, helps her find an alternative path in her life.
Mo’nique plays the role of the girl’s mum and Kravitz plays the role of a nurse who shows kindness to Jones.
“Push is as important to me as ‘Roots,’ and I’m honoured that Sapphire entrusted me with her book,” Variety quoted Daniels, as saying. (ANI)
