More Lee Daniels Talk
Lee Daniels is in talks to bring Nilo Cruz's play Anna in the Tropics to the big screen. Cruz was nominated for a 2004 Tony for Best Play and won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Drama for the play, making him the first Latino to receive that honor. Daniels is best known for his Oscar nominated direction of the film Precious and, in addition to the longstanding rumors that he would direct the film version of the musical Miss Saigon, Daniels' interest in directing the film of The Scottsboro Boys have recently come to light.
