History is in the making. Winnie Mandela’s, the wife of Nelson Mandela, biopic trailer has just been released. The film’s release comes two years after it was shelved over distribution issues until this Spring when T.D. Jakes became executive producer of the film.
Jennifer Hudson—also starring in Black Nativity—is set to star as Winnie, and Terrence Howard—starring in The Butler and Best Man Holiday—will play Mandela. Unlike her husband’s biopic Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom starring Idris Elba and Naomi Harris as South African leaders, this story will focus on Winnie’s role in ending the apartheid.
