NEW MOVIE BIOPIC ON OPRAH WINFREY STARS JENNIFER HUDSON
Fort Lauderdale, FL (BlackNews.com) - African American screenwriter and inventor John Dixon is working on a new unauthorized movie project on the "Bigger Than Life" broadcast mogul, Oprah Winfrey. This will be the first ever- attempt to inspire a motion picture dramatization of Oprah Winfrey's rise to fame from her humble beginnings in rural Mississippi. Dixon says his original movie idea covers the media queen's trials and tribulations, from her troubled childhood, to becoming an anchorwoman, her relationship with family and friends, her romance with Stedman, her purchase of Harpo Studios, to her many humanitarian contributions.
"There is no way that the story of the most influential, successful and powerful woman in television should go untold. Oprah deserves and earned this type of 'Big Screen' honor and there should be no delay in making this first of its kind movie a reality. Oprah positively inspires countless women daily on her more than popular, 'Oprah Winfrey Show.'" Dixon states that his story will be part fictional based around factual events. Dixon says his original idea derived from his many encounters of both women and men, who named Oprah as their personal role model and/or hero.
Dixon is also the first to suggest that Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson play the lead role of Oprah. "I feel that Hudson will no doubt rein in another Academy nomination for her portrayal of Oprah. I see many similarities in Winfrey and Hudson, not only do they look and act alike as in (The Color Purple and The Secret Life of Bees) but they also seem to have the same positive vibe." Dixon believes that his "O-Project" will be a huge hit among millions of people across the globe. "It's just a simple success story on achieving the American Dream!"
Although Dixon is at the early concept stage, he is very excited about his new film idea. Dixon anticipates that Harpo Productions, The Weinstein Company or others will pick up his project for further development. Dixon resides in South Florida and is also the screenwriter of The Black Beatles, the first ever-movie biopic on legendary reggae group, "The Wailers."
