Winnie Mandela starring Academy Award winning actress Jennifer Hudson as Winnie Mandela and co-starring Terrence Howard as former South African President Nelson Mandela, is set to be released this fall in US theaters. The film is an adaptation of Anne Marie du Preez Bezdrob’s biography “Winnie Mandela: A Life.” The bio-picture was written and directed by Darrell J. Roodt.
“Winnie Mandela has been a labor of love,” said Roodt. “We wanted to uphold the prestige of the Mandela name and tell her story as accurately and respectfully as possible. We took great pride and responsibility in creating this movie, and we are proud to release the never-before-seen dramatic love story this fall. The brilliant acting by Jennifer and Terrence, supported by the excellent cinematography and outstanding title song by six-time Academy Award nominee Diane Warren [sung by Jennifer Hudson,] make this film incomparable.”
