She's everywhere these days isn't she? So much in development from the Queen coming up in the next year or so.
On the heels of news a couple of days ago that she'll be starring in an ensemble all-black remake of Steel Magnolias, Queen Latifah will join Terrence Howard, Peter Fonda and Alexz Johnson to star in the indie thriller House of Bodies, to be directed by Alex Merkin, from a script penned by Eddie Harris.
So what's House Of Bodies about?
Story follows Kyle, a deaf child who enjoys chatting online with Nicole (Latifah), a relay operator at a telephone service for the hearing-impaired. Kyle's fascination with the macabre leads him to explore the House of Bodies, a voyeur website based out of the former home of serial killer Henry Lee Bishop (Fonda), now on death row. When police discover a string of grisly copycat murders, a detective (Howard) must race to uncover the mystery.
Latifah and her Flavor Unit partner Shakim Compere will produce the film.
Production is set to begin at Flavor Unit Studios in Miami this month.
