J-Hud Joins Jordin Sparks, Others in Alicia Keys-Produced Film

Expect an R&B smorgasbord of singer/actresses in the upcoming film “The Inevitable Defeat of Mister And Pete.” The drama, directed by George Tillman and produced by Alicia Keys, adds Jennifer Hudson to an already confirmed roster that includes Jordin Sparks, Jeffrey Wright, and Anthony Mackie.

Deadline.com reports that the film will tell the story of two inner city kids who must take care of themselves after their mothers have been taken away by authority figures.

Film production began this week in Brooklyn.
