Everything Great comes in Twos

Angela Bassett's got two kids, two spouses (Angie and I got married last August 25th...okkk thats a joke!), two decades of movies on her resume, and two movies filming this summer:

Shakespeare's Henry IV
The first feature film adaptation of Shakespeare's most political play. Directed by Shawn Tolleson
Co-produced by Drew Brody
Starring Martin Sheen as King Henry IV, Angela Bassett, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Alexander Siddig.
Begins filming summer 2007.

Meet the Browns
The newest Tyler Perry film about a family forced to come together after their grandfathers' death. Described by Angela as a "city mouse-country mouse story."
Directed by Tyler Perry
Starring Angela Bassett and possibly Deelishis as Angie's daughter
Scheduled to begin filming July 2007

I bring this post up because its going to be quite interesting to see how Angela balances the filming of both of these movies in the short 3 months of summer. I think she'll do it easily and with the grace shes always had. I'm just happy to finally see Angela onscreen like she needs to be and in the range of roles that will show off her talent. Yay, the Queen is back on her throne!

Historical action epic based on the life of Toussaint Louverture, who led a successful slave rebellion in the 18th century that sparked the Haitian Revolution
Directed by Danny Glover
Written by Joslyn Barnes and Vijay Balakrishnan
Starring Don Cheadle, Wesley Snipes, Angela Bassett, Mos Def, and Chiwetel Ejiofor
Begins filming October thru December 2007
