The Best Man stars Sanaa Lathan and Terrence Howard are teaming up again for a remake of Shakespeare's Macbeth.  Get the deets inside and find out what famous role Halle Berry is set to reprise...

 

Sanaa Lathan and Terrence Howard have signed on to join Blair Underwood and Evan Ross in a remake  of William Shakespeare's Macbeth. The retooled film will be called Macbett and will shoot on location in Jamaica and Puerto Rico in September 2013.

Terrence, who also serves as executive producer of the film, will be working with writer/director Aleta Chappelle (who'll make history as the first Black woman to direct a film version of the story).  Indiewire posted  the film's  synopsis:

"after a gallant military victory, General Macbett (Wipes) encounters the “Weird Sisters,” who are the spirit daughters of Mother Africa and reign over fire, water, earth and sky. They delight in manipulating Macbett by feeding him predictions of royal titles including “King.” Macbett soon becomes obsessed with ambition, as does his beautiful and ruthless wife Lady Macbett (Lathan) .

"As Macbett and his Lady spiral downward, indulging in treachery and political assassinations, they are soon haunted by their murderous deeds and driven mad. In a true exemplification of a tragedy, Macbett is defeated by his own zealous thirst for power, a heartbreaking end to a once beloved Hero".

And in other news, Sanaa and Terrence will hopefully reprise their memorable role in The Best Man sequel called Best Man Holiday coming soon.

It's official, Oscar-winning actress Halle Berry will return to the X-Men franchise in the role of Storm (which she originated in the first film) for the latest installment X-Men: Days of Future Past.  She told "Access Hollywood", "I'm in. I think I'm in. I am excited. I love Storm. That's one of my favourite characters that I've played. And people love that character as well."

That sentiment was later confirmed with director Bryan Singer tweeted,

So Sanaa got a job after being blacklisted for a while. I bet she learned to stop pucking married men who have powerful wives.

why do we always have to

why do we always have to "remake" somebody else's stories, do we have fairy tales and fables of our own, uh, yeah we do. I'm sure the story will be fine, but dang, do we have to remake everything, can we be original, creative...we are the originals, do we not know this?

Agree completely! I don't

Agree completely! I don't understand this CONSTANT remaking of white people stuff. If you have the money raised; the actors available, then why can't an original work be gotten as well? This is just getting ridiculous. I understand Hollywood likes to do remakes (due to the cost & having a ready made audience), but at some point people have to say enough is enough, especially when it comes to this black versions of white people work genre when in. I miss the days of Spike Lee and John singleton and the 70's black exploitation phase. They at least were original.

Sanaa is still as lovely as

Sanaa is still as lovely as ever I hope she will continue to get work because she is a GOOD actress, not phony like her bad acting pal Gabby Union yet not over acting like sometimes Kerry Washington does. Sanaa is just one of my favorites! I love Halle but I never liked her as "Storm" I always felt that role was for a BETTER actress an actress who could act without uttering a word and told the story at times w/ just Facial Expressions. I use to watch the X-Men cartoons when I was younger and STORMS character was a stronge AFRICAN WOMAN w/ Great Presence as much as I like Halle she never really represented that to me and her WEAK voice did'nt help matter's! I think Thandie Newton would have been an EXCELLENT STORM or even a model like Liya Kebede who is even actually Ethiopian, or even Zoe Saldana, I love Halle but her portrayal as "Storm" was too weak, but congrats to her anyway. Kudos to Halle for still being able to play Storm at 47yrs old!
