Some may call Taraji many things, just be sure to mention that she is serious about securing the bag! Proud Mary hits theaters this Friday and Empire on FOX is still going strong. This will be Taraji’s second project where she will serve as the producer. Although, she does have five executive production credits under her belt.
Taraji and John Singleton are teaming up for the film “The Life of Emmitt Till”. According to Shadow and Act, in it she will portray Emmit’s mother, Mamie Till Mobley. Her desire to be part of the project was motivated by the murder of Trayvonn Martin, according to her interview with GlobalGrind.
I will definitely have to keep my eye out for this film. John Singleton first captured our attention with the critically acclaimed release of Boyz in the Hood. I still have not forgiven him for killing Ricky. But I digress. We see you girl, keep walking in that black excellence.
