Millenium Films' A Little Bit of Heaven, directed by Nicole Kassell and written by Gren Wells, will open on limited release May 4, 2012, and will see a DVD release on June 12, 2012. The film has been available on Itunes since April 3rd. The rom-com about a young woman dealing with life with cancer, stars Kate Hudson, Gael Garcia Bernal, Kathy Bates, Rosemarie DeWitt, Romany Malco, Whoopi Goldberg amongst others.

Think Like A Man's Malco, whom I just chatted with - an interview which should be up in a couple of days- plays a New Orleans bar owner and neighbor/confidant to Kate Hudson's character. Whoopi Goldberg plays a heavenly being who grants Hudson's character three wishes while Hudson's character is under the effects of anesthesia.

Here's the full synopsis:

A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN is a love story set in New Orleans about an irreverent young woman who unexpectedly falls in love with her doctor. Marley Corbett (Kate Hudson) is young, beautiful, and wildly funny, but she's afraid of opening herself up to true love and commitment. Though she uses her humor to prevent matters from getting serious, a life-changing visit to her doctor (Gael Garcia Bernal) sends both of them on an eye-opening adventure of mutual discovery, leading to revelations neither thought possible.

    Whoopi never gets tired of playing Magical Negroes. Hollywood can always count on her to take the Negro roles.

    So what's wrong with a black man taking on a gay role? I wish more black male actors would take on gay roles.

    This sounds like the movie version of 'The Big C'.

    Is this the female version of 50/50 I'm with cancer? Wack but unfortunately will make tons of dollars. SMH.

    Lame. I'm sad that wonderful actors of color (e.g. Gael Garcia Bernal, Romany Malco, and Whoopi Goldberg) have to take roles in such lame and un-challenging films just to get some exposure. Smh.
