In case you haven’t noticed, Taraji’s star is burning white hot these days. In addition to starring in a hit show and a number one box office film, according to Deadline, the actress is set to star in a new film called Proud Mary.
Henson will play a hit woman whose life is shaken up when she meets a young boy who she feels she needs to mother. Though she’s never been the maternal type. Screen Gems is looking for a director for the project now.
Production on the film, written by John Stewart Newman and Christian Swegal, is set to begin in Boston this April. Paul Schiff and Tai Duncan are producing the project.
Screen Gems was also behind Henson’s No Good Deed and Think Like a Man.
