Lee Daniels to Direct Historic Civil Rights Flick "Selma" 


Lee Daniels is my new favorite director right now. He mesmerized me with his flick "Precious: Based on the Novel 'Push' by Sapphire."

Last month, we told you that the director was in talks to direct the movie version of the musical "Miss Saigon," now, Daniels is in serious negotations to helm "Selma."

Variety told us that "Selma" will trace the historic 1965 march in the Alabama town that marked the political and emotional peak of the civil rights movement.

The script is written by Paul Webb ("Lincoln") and I heard that it's fantastic!

There's no cast attached yet, but production is set to begin early spring.
