Rumor has it...
Disney is planning to make a live-action movie musical version of the hit Broadway play "Aida," which was based on the popular opera by Giuseppe Verdi, which was originally based on a story by Auguste Mariette. And just who's being named as the possible actress to play the lead Nubian princess? None other than Miss Beyonce Knowles.
Jim Hill Media, a source of news and commentary mostly about Disney projects, states: "The Mouse is reportedly already in talks with this pop diva, trying to convince Ms. Knowles to make Aida her follow-up project to Dreamgirls."
Sure, um, okay.
I guess this makes sense. Sure, I'd rather see a better actress take this role (and I know many people prefer Beyonce to sing instead of act — if she has to do anything at all), but I'll bet Disney's not thinking quite along those lines. What do you think about this news? Who else could (or should) play Aida?
