In her first major role since her Oscar-winning performance in Dreamgirls, Jennifer Hudson is joining the cast of Sex and the City: The Movie.
The singer and actress, 25, will portray the assistant to Sarah Jessica Parker‘s shoe-obsessed character Carrie Bradshaw, and is in final negotiations with the movie’s producers about details of her role, Variety is reporting.
Hudson is also in the studio working on her debut album, and is in the upcoming crime drama Winged Creatures opposite Kate Beckinsale and Forest Whitaker.
MG Says: Congrats! I am glad to see Jennifer moving on to something new and very different from Dreamgirls. I can’t wait for the new album to drop.
