Despite all of the nay-sayers, Mo’Nique & her husband, Sidney Hicks put their money and her acting skills behind their own project and are prepping for the release of ‘Blackbird,’ Mo’Niques first film since, Precious.
The film, starring Mo’Nique & Isaiah Washington, was shot a few months back in Mississippi.
“’Blackbird’ is a film about the choices people are forced to make as they struggle to figure out how to be themselves,” Hicks said.
“And why should just being who you are be a struggle? Since Mo’Nique won the Oscar, we have received a flood of scripts, but nothing captured our attention until Isaiah — who we have a high level of respect for — sent us ‘Blackbird.’”
