Evangelist and film producer mogul T.D. Jakes and his company TDJ Enterprises/Film Bridge International jump on board to executive produce and develop a domestic marketing and distribution strategy for the Winnie and Nelson Mandela love story Winnie, which stars Jennifer Hudson and Terrence Howard.
TDJ will be in charge of the producing aspect of the filmmaking and ensure effective marketing and distribution.
The company has had great success with recent hit films like “jumping the Broom” and the “Woman Thou Art Loosed” franchise.
Since “Winnie” is basically finished, this goes as a sigh of relief for those involved with the film. Now the story can be told and it’s about time.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the company is also jumping on board executive produce A Million Colours, which last month was the opening film at the 2012 Hollywood Black Film Festival.
