Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - NEWS -

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
