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?
