Hudson to play Winnie
OSCAR-winner Jennifer Hudson will star as Winnie Mandela in a film to be made next year in South Africa, Ma-Afrika Films said yesterday.
“Winnie Mandela is a complex and extraordinary woman and I’m honoured to be the actress asked to portray her. This is a powerful part of history that should be told,” said Hudson.
The film, Winnie, a co-production between Ma-Afrika and Canadian Equinoxe Films, will be directed by SA’s award-winning Darrell Roodt. – Sapa
