Oprah Winfrey to Produce Martin Luther King Jr. Biopic SELMA; Paramount Closing Domestic Distribution Deal

by     Posted 57 days ago


Having Oprah Winfrey in your corner certainly helps with whatever project you’re intending to market, whether it’s the next bestselling novel, or a long-gestating Martin Luther King, Jr. biopic.  Today’s news focuses on the latter, as Winfrey has signed on to produce Selma for Paramount.  Her involvement comes after taking a liking to the script rewrite turned in by writer-director Ana DuVernay last year.  The project is being fast-tracked, so as soon as Paramount seals the deal on domestic distribution, production is expected to start right away.
