Watch Now – Black Woman Wins $112 Million Lottery & Creates Film Production Company
Nice! She says she has several scripts with A-list names attached to them, ready to be produced. I could find info on 3 of those films, via IMDB PRO.
First, a film called Adrenaline, which is scheduled for a 2011 release. IMDB states that the film is a comedy about a “buttoned-up corporate guy who gets sucked into his crazy assistant’s scheme of seducing women by staging heroic acts, but bites off more than he can chew when he sets his sights on his beautiful but un-seducable co-worker.” Sounds interesting enough… although, no info is provided on who’s attached to star in it.
For the other 2 films, she’s listed strictly as executive producer, which could mean anything, but likely that she financed, or co-financed them. Each is listed as currently “in-production.” The first is titled My Place In The Horror – a thriller that stars Keith David, D.B. Woodside, Golden Brooks (of Girlfriends fame), and a host of others; the second is titled Polish Bar, a drama that stars Meat Loaf, Richard Belzer, Judd Hirsch, and others.
So, not necessarily what we’d call A-list talent, with those last 2 films. But, like I said, no info on the first one. And, besides, there may be others that just haven’t been listed yet.
Her company’s website reveals nothing.
I’ve always dreamed that if I ever did win the lottery, I’d do exactly what she’s doing – start a small film finance/production/distribution company, and grow (hopefully, anyway). So, good for her, especially with her aspirations to become a media mogul, not unlike Oprah.
Now, let’s wait and see what comes from all this!
