Jennifer Hudson will join Jeffrey Wright, Anthony Mackie and Jordin Sparks in the upcoming film “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister And Pete.” The film is produced by Alicia Keys and directed by George Tillman Jr. It tells the story of two inner-city kids who are forced to care for themselves after their mothers are taken away by authorities.
Hudson’s also made an announcement of her role as a Broadway star in the upcoming season of the TV musical-drama series, “Smash.”
Jennifer said, “It’s just the perfect opportunity. It’s gonna be challenging, and I’m a little bit intimidated to play this big Broadway star, but it’s gonna be a great experience. I can’t wait to get started.”
Production for “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister And Pete” began in Brooklyn, NY this week.
