Janet Jackson has signed a movie deal with Lionsgate Entertainment to select, develop and produce one feature film for the popular independent studio, according to reports.
"I have been fortunate to work in the film industry, though not as much as I would like," Janet tells the Hollywood Reporter. "I have a passion for storytelling, and have been doing it through my music for some time."
The deal comes after Janet has recently built a good rapport with the studio having starred in three Tyler Perry films (Why Did I Get Married?, Why Did I Get Married, Too? and For Colored Girls) under the Lionsgate umbrella.
