Does Ms. Washington know something we don't?
Last time anything was mentioned on S&A about a film biopic of Chisholm was back in 2010 at the old site, when Tambay posted about Viola Davis being eyed to portray the the 72' presidential runner for a democratic nomination in a feature film written by Camille Thomasson and produced by Bryan Gambogi and Grant Anderson of Creative Monster Productions.
Although, I couldn't find further information in the production company's website, the film Chisholm is listed in imdb under Creative Monster Productions' credits with a release date of 2012 and showing in pre-production. However, no word on whether the project is alive and/or if it's affiliated with the project Regina King has in mind.
Hopefully we'll find out one way or another, sooner than later, if a feature film is actually in development. It would be interesting to see King tackle this role.
Meanwhile here's a clip of the 2005 documentary Chisholm '72 Unbought & Unbossed, a doc that I must watch, like, now!
