Mariah Carey set for movie role in PushSeptember 22nd, 2008 - 6:20 pm ICT by ANI
New York, Sep 22 (ANI): After winning accolades for her role in Tennessee, Hollywood actress Mariah Carey is set to act in director Lee Daniels upcoming flick Push.
Director Lee Daniels was dazed by the popstars performance as a battered wife of a state trooper in Tennessee so much that he has cast her in his flick Push.
Carey will be seen portraying a Harlem social worker ministering to an obese, HIV-positive woman impregnated twice by her father, reports the New York Daily News.
Meanwhile, Carey is also developing a movie musical based on her colossal-selling Christmas album, which is about a town outside a city - perhaps not unlike Mariah’’s hometown of Huntington, L.I. - where a ruthless developer wants to turn it into one big mall. (ANI)
