Queen Latifah and Regina King are two of the big wigs who have thrown their names, money, and talents behind a Houstonian.
That person is former Fox 26 reporter and best selling author Reshonda Tate Billingsley.
Latifah and King will executive produce and direct the movie based on Billingsley’s second book ‘Let the Church Say Amen’.
Billingsley says the movie is being shot in Atlanta because Houston lost out because of a lack of tax breaks for the movie industry.
She says the adaptation could be on television or in theaters as early as Spring 2013.
Reshonda also just signed a new 10 book deal with her publisher.
The wildly popular author has already written 25 faith based novels.
She says it’s incredible to have all of your dreams come true.
BET has optioned three more of her books for television movies.
Way to go Mrs. Billingsley!
