Movie Fab: Beyonce & Idris Get Obsessed +Angela Bassett & Others Do The Biggie Movie

​ ​ ​ ​

Beyonce and Idris Elba have been tapped to play husband and wife in a new thriller movie.  It's called Obsessed and B will actually be executive producing, alongside Papa Knowles of course.  The movie goes into production this summer.  Apparently the plot surrounds a temp office worker (played by Ali Larter) stalking Idris and ish gets extra interesting.  Whatev.  B gets to tend to Idris and perform wifely duties with that man so I'm officially salty.

Up and coming actor "Gravy" has been casted to play Notorious B.I.G. in the upcoming Biggie movie.  And it looks like dude already has the look down.  Good luck with that though. Derek Luke is set to play Diddy. That looks like a stretch. And Angie Bassett is set to play Biggie's mother Voletta Wallace.  Nice.  Miss Info's got more of the cast over at her place.

I'm not saying he does but

I'm not saying he does but Idris Alba looks like he beats women. There's just something about him... And as for Beyonce and acting I don't think a thriller/drama is the right role for her. Her acting skills are not that hot.

What's up truth is, a bunch a

What's up truth is, a bunch a bs I see. What the hell do you mean jump off the fucking hate train. The only loser on this page is probably yourself. We are just people stating their opinion, but like always, that's considered hating. Give me a fucking break. You are probably so obsessed with that fake ass chick, that you can't see the truth. And as far as embracing black enterprise. I do. I'm pretty sure everyone on here does, but don't put black and Beyonce in the same goddam sentence. She always wished she was a fucking latino remember! Words from her own mouth!

LOVING EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS

LOVING EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS POST! love B love love Idris love Natasha for admitting jealousness. i ain't mad girl i'm hatin' too cuz i could soooo jack beyonce for her role as idris' wife. love angie bassett as voletta wallace, but not such a fan of derek luke as diddy. with his new found hollywood stardom and overly egotistical attitude i'm surprised diddy is not tryna play himself in this biopic.

B's movie actually sounds interesting. I've always thought she should switch it up and do a suspense...nice. Hop off the hater train for a minute, losers. Embrace Black Enterprise and Black Business...I thought this was a Pro-Black Entertainment blog?

I agree with Miss Priss. That

I agree with Miss Priss. That chick can not act worth a shit, but it seems like a lot of people are to afraid to come out and say it. The proof is in the pudding. Most of her roles had her playing dress up, and involved singing. Basically her normal self. So as far as any serious roles that require real acting, don't think she can cut it, and that's just my opinion. Of course some people will say I'm hating, but that's not the case. She can't act and yall know it. As for being fake, I thought I was the only one that noticed that. She's never consistant with any thing that she says. She says what she thinks will please the people, and that's very irritating. I remember her stating on some tv one talk show that she wanted an oscar. You know? That award that real actors and actresses get? It was as if she thought an oscar was gonna get handed right to her because she made it known that she wanted one. Who knows maybe if she take acting classes, maybe she'll get it right. But if you ask me, which you didn't, but so what I'm saying it anyway, she should stick to singing.

-Umm, I really hope B & Papa

-Umm, I really hope B & Papa are also getting some pro/experienced directors and producers to help with this movie becuz I really don't feel that just becuz you got the money to venture into other markets that you should. I'm not hating at all but I don't want these folks to disrespect the movie biz by throwing 2gether sum BS just to get B in anotha movie. Do ur hmwk & make dis good folks! -And the red lipstick is still not sumthin B or any black woman should still be doing on a regular! Stop the madness and tone it down! Not FAB :(

hahahaha MissPriss....

hahahaha MissPriss.... true..I like Bey though.. not that red lipstick on her but I like Bey Anyway, I wonder if Derek Luke will be the young Diddy also... I guess he can pull it off he still looks 20something @ 32 and married. I think his kid is due this month I read in a mag while in line at the grocer...lol.. Anyway, am I interested ina Biggie movie? NOPE! I liked Biggie as an artist but we've seen his story on tv. let it go...grew up in bed stuy, sold drugs on the corner, met Lil ho, diddy the dancer and you know the rest...lol.. I would like to see a Tupac movie though..lmao... why because his mind was filled with vision, his music told a story of the future before it even came into fruition. His parents were Black Panthers now that is history... but that's my 2cent...

That is definitely Derek

That is definitely Derek Luke. You can find other photos of him online. His look changes a little from project to project, but that's him. Not real sure why he is playing Diddy, although I admit, he can act. Thank goodness they didn't cast Diddy to play himself. His performance in the TV movie "A Raisin in the Sun" was dreadful. This is one of those "wait and see" movies. It will either be great or a total waste of time. There is not a lot of room for "average" when you are doing a bio on someone like the Notorious B.I.G.
