I told you about the project of Queen Latifah to play the role of bisexual jazz singer Bessie Smith in a movie about her life. We now know that this film will premiere on HBO in 2015.

According to Broadway World, the film focuses on Smith's transformation from a struggling young singer into "The Empress of the Blues," one of the most successful recording artists of the 1920s and an enduring icon today.

This film will be written and directed by Dee Rees that we already know for her lesbian film "Pariah."
