Kimberly Elise talks “The Great Debaters”,

leave a comment »

Elise sat down with Kam Williams. Here are a few snippets.

On “The Great Debaters”

KW: What interested you in The Great Debaters?

KE: Well, a couple of things. One, I thought it was a fantastic part of our history, of American history, and what an honor it would be to be a part of telling this story. It’s a small part, but it was important to Denzel [director/co-star Denzel Washington] that every part be filled by a strong actor. So, it was a no-brainer.

On her next film project “Red Soil”

KW: The director of Red Soil is Charles Burnett, who has enjoyed a renaissance this year with the long-overdue theatrical release of Killer of Sheep, a movie he made 30 years ago, way back in 1977.

KE: I’m very excited to be working with Charles.

KW: I know that story is set in Ghana. Will you be filming on location?

KE: Yes.
