Singer and actress Jennifer Hudson has graced the big screen for the past six years. Next the Oscar winner will tackle the role of Winnie Mandela — wife of Nelson Mandela, which will be portrayed by Terrence Howard. The film — directed and co-written by Darrell Roodt — will chronicle Winnie’s life from harsh beginnings to leading the movement to end South African apartheid with her husband. Winnie had an original release date in 2011, but earlier this year co-producer T.D. Jakes has announced a Fall 2012 release date.
