What’s in the new chicken wraps, Mary? Well, apparently it’s a movie role replacement! According to WENN, back in 2010 Mary J. Blige was lined up to play singer Nina Simone in a new biopic that was supposed to start filming last year. The film then experienced a number of financial issues and Mary J. Blige subsequently stepped down from the role.
But now it’s been revealed that Zoe Saldana will be playing Nina. The movie will start filming in Los Angeles this October. Zoe will be starring along side David Oyelowo, who will play her manager Clifton Henderson. What do you think? Should Mary J. Blige have stayed in the role or is Zoe the right choice?
