Jennifer Hudson “Winne Mandela” Movie

HollywoodNews.com: The Toronto Film Festival just announced more galas and premieres to add to the already existing, exhausting line up. Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howard will debut their “Winnie” {Mandela) movie, directed by Darryl Roodt. Nicole Kidman and Nicolas Cage will bring Joel Schumacher’s “Trespass.” (I’m crossing my fingers on that one.) Oscar winning “Precious” screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher has “Violet and Daisy,” which he also directed. Catherine Deneuve and her talented daughter Chiara Mastroianni are in “Beloved,” by Christopher Honore. So many films, so little time.
