Queen Latifah and Jill Scott to star in new film about Flint

CO-STARS: Queen Latifah and Jill Scott

QUEEN LATIFAH and Jill Scott will star in a new Lifetime film together, it's been announced.

The network released some details on the upcoming film project, which will examine the Flint water crisis. The film, which will be produced by Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, is inspired by writer Josh Sanburn’s 2016 Time magazine cover story “The Toxic Tap.”

“Flint” will explore the true story of three activists ― portrayed by Scott, actresses Betsy Brandt and Marin Ireland with Latifah playing a fourth resident ― who are fighting to expose and bring justice to the events surrounding their lead-tainted water supply, according to a press release.

Previously, Scott and Latifah co-starred in Lifetime’s 2012 remake of the 1989 film “Steel Magnolias.”

Production for “Flint” begins next week.
