Will Steven Soderbergh Direct "The Man From U.N.C.L.E.?"

"James Bond" creator, Ian Fleming, contributed to the creation of the show.

Trailer: Check Out Jennifer Hudson As "Winnie" Mandela! 

Here's our full story on "Winnie" as it appeared on Nov. 18, 2009:

Jennifer Hudson, the Oscar-winner and ex-American idol contestant, is getting ready for her next big challenge -- playing "Winnie," the former wife of South Africa's first black president, Nelson Mandela.

Darrell J. Roodt is set to direct. Roodt previously helmed 2006's "Yesterday," and also worked on "Cry, the Beloved Country" and "Sarafina!"

Based on Anna Marie du Preez Bezdrob's biography "Winnie Mandela:A Life," Andre Pieterse, Roodt, and Paul L. Johnson collaborated on the script.

Variety is reporting that Mandela's "former wife is a far more complicated figure. She has been depicted as the mother and wife who was a steadfast supporter of her activist husband and who was jailed herself for campaigning for his release and fighting against apartheid. Her image was subsequently tarnished by association with a bodyguard who murdered a 14-year old alleged informer, and she was later convicted of fraud."

The filmmakers are saying they will the whole story, good and bad.

Production begins May 30 in Johannesburg, Capt Town, and the Transkei and Robben Island. Hudson is expected to sing the film's theme song.

Another Mandela-centric film is set to open this December. Morgan Freeman will play Nelson Mandela in the Clint Eastwood film "Invictus."
