janet jackson signs production deal with lionsgate

After starring in three Tyler Perry films for Lionsgate, Janet Jackson seems to have proved herself to the company…so much so that they've signed a production deal with her.

That's right, folks! Janet Jackson has signed a deal "to select, develop and produce a feature film" for Lionsgate.

Here's what she had to say about it:

“Many people forget I started out as an actor. I have been fortunate to work in the film industry, though not as much as I would like. I have a passion for storytelling, and have been doing it through my music for some time.”

Here's what Lionsgate president of motion picture production and development Mike Paseornek had to say about Janet:

“She is a powerful on-screen presence, with a vast audience, and we believe she will be an equally powerful presence behind the scenes. We are honored to be able to provide a home for her ideas, passion and immense talent.”

Congratulations, Janet! We're proud of you, and we'll look forward to seeing what film project you choose to put together for Lionsgate.

Do U think Janet will make a good movie producer?

    Janet is one of the talented Jacksons…I wish her the best. Everyone has the right to make a living. Her expertise being around and in Show Business should make her a natural. That said since she will be a newbie I hope she will not try and star in these productions and place her energy in producing great work.

    Wearing her hair slicked back makes the chin and cheek implants look too obvious. But I guess that is the accepted look for 40+ women in Hollywood - an enlarged wooden face.

    ugh nice cheek implants. what a loser



  4. 4

    did the doctor put her breast implants into her cheeks?

    oh …i forgot the jacksons do not have plastic surgery.

    Good God, girl! Your head is the size of a peanut and your cheeks the size of your ass!!!!!!!!!

    Her supple lips, sexy mouth, prominent cheeks and her brothers nose..what a sight to see! Is it just me or do all the Jackson brother and sisters start to look more and more like their creepy Dad as they grow older!!???

    Janet has got to let her hair grow back. She doesn't know how to wear the short hair or maybe her head is too big but it is just not a flattering look for her.

    So janet looks like her father and her siblings, complete shock people because it's not like they shares the same genes.. janet has always had high cheek bones and big cheeks, she's beautiful. I wish her the best.

    THE PLASTIC SURGERY IS NOT NEW NEWS, SHE'S HAD IT SINCE THE 1980'S. WHAT'S SHOCKING IS THAT SHOWER CAP ON HER HEAD AND THE MAKE UP. GEEZ, JANET YOU'RE ALMOST 50! IS TIME FOR YOU TO STOP USING JERMAINE'S MAKE UP BAG AND GET YOUR OWN. THE FOUNDATION, FINISHING POWDER AND LIPSTICK SHOULD BE ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO HAVE HER ARRESTED BY THE FASHION POLICE!!!!

    I would be so star struck if I saw her in person. She seems really cool with her fans.

    Stop being so mean! Janet is one of the best of the jacksons and looking forward to her films.
