Looks like Lenny Kravitz has been cast in another movie,and this one has quite the cast! While we have no details on Lenny’s role in the movie, it sounds like a great film.
In a report from the Wrap :
The Icon UK Group will back Lee Daniels’ “The Butler,” the company said Tuesday.
The story of Eugene Allen, a White House butler who served eight American presidents over the course of four decades, will star Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whitaker.
Daniels said of “The Butler”: “This project awes me. The scope and magnitude of the father and son story moves me to tears. Bringing this essential black history to the screen is a terrifying and exhilarating challenge.”
Daniels spent more than a year trying to round up financing for “Selma,” about one of the 1960s’ iconic Civil Rights marches, only to have financing fall apart. “The Butler” will allow the director to examine some parts of that turbulent period through Allen’s service to presidents Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon.
The supporting cast is impressive, but they will face the task of playing instantly recognizable historical figures.
“The Butler” features Matthew McConaughey as John F. Kennedy, John Cusack as Richard Nixon, Alan Rickman as Ronald Reagan, and Jane Fonda as Nancy Reagan. Rounding out the ensemble are Cuba Gooding Jr., David Oyelowo, Lenny Kravitz and Terrence Howard.
