Movieline has confirmed that Lionsgate shortened the title of Perry’s award season ensembler For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf to just For Colored Girls.
The movie stars a sweeping all-star cast including Whoopi Goldberg, Anika Noni Rose, Phylicia Rashad, Kerry Washington, Janet Jackson, Thandie Newton, Loretta Devine, Kimberly Elise, Macy Gray, and Tessa Thompson.
Some reports are suggesting there is early Oscar buzz, particularly for the performances of Anika Noni Rose, and on Tyler Perry himself who familiarized himself with the coveted voting community as a producer for last year’s “Precious.” The film’s new early release date will place in it the running for 2011 Oscar consideration.
“For Colored Girls” will be the first project from Perry’s new production company, 34th Street Films, which is housed at Lionsgate.
“For Colored Girls” release date is November 5th 2010.
