Have you seen the trailer for Tyler Perry’s upcoming film adaptation of the play “For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow is Enuf?”
It’s up on his website now. Here’s the link.
The title, being something of a mouthful, is being shortened for the film to just “For Colored Girls.” The movie stars a slew of big names including Janet Jackson, Loretta Devine, Whoopi Goldberg, Phyllicia Rashad and Thandie Newton, who stepped in at the last minute when Mariah Carey had to bow out. It hits screens next month.
It was filmed largely in the metro Atlanta area, with some shots in New York. There’s a snippet in the trailer that was definitely shot here – at the Joan Glancy Memorial Hospital in Duluth, which is part of Gwinnett Medical Center.
The film originally was to premier in early 2011 but it is being released early. Maybe to be eligible for a 2010 Oscar? It looks powerful. Will you plan to see it?
