Sanaa Lathan and Terrence Howard have signed on to join Blair Underwood and Evan Ross in a remake of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth. The retooled film will be called Macbett and will shoot on location in Jamaica and Puerto Rico in September 2013.
Terrence, who also serves as executive producer of the film, will be working with writer/director Aleta Chappelle (who’ll make history as the first Black woman to direct a film version of the story). Indiewire posted the film’s synopsis:
"after a gallant military victory, General Macbett (Wipes) encounters the “Weird Sisters,” who are the spirit daughters of Mother Africa and reign over fire, water, earth and sky. They delight in manipulating Macbett by feeding him predictions of royal titles including “King.” Macbett soon becomes obsessed with ambition, as does his beautiful and ruthless wife Lady Macbett (Lathan) .
"As Macbett and his Lady spiral downward, indulging in treachery and political assassinations, they are soon haunted by their murderous deeds and driven mad. In a true exemplification of a tragedy, Macbett is defeated by his own zealous thirst for power, a heartbreaking end to a once beloved Hero".
And in other news, Sanaa and Terrence will hopefully reprise their memorable role in The Best Man sequel called Best Man Holidaycoming soon.

Actress Sanaa Lathan is putting her great looks and envious hair to good use. She’s been named the brand new face of the Pantene Pro-V Nature Fusion collection. And TheYBF.com has the first look at her fresh-faced new photoshoot for her new gig….
Pantene’s new Nature Fusion Moisture Balance Collection is getting all made up with a pretty face. The 40-year-old "The Cleveland Show" actress, Sanaa Lathan, has just officially been named the new spokeswoman.
As for how she keeps her hair looking naturally healthy with that flowing look she constantly rocks on the red carpet, she revealed, “It is important to me that I treat my hair with products that have naturally-derived ingredients, like Cassia in the Nature Fusion Moisture Balance Collection, which has made my hair so soft and strong.”
And since she doesn’t just wake up with perfectly healthy hair, she admits all the styling has indeed ripped her mane apart. So she dished on her fave products that work for her.
“Throughout my life, Pantene has been one of the few hair care brands that effectively address the specific needs of my hair texture," Sanaa says about the product line. "My hair is prone to dryness and my career does not help the situation! All of the styling and heat on set leaves my hair dull, lifeless and damaged. I need a shampoo and conditioner that nourishes my hair and I want to use more natural products. That is why I love Nature Fusion Moisture Balance shampoo and conditioner. It is great that, as a black woman, I can look to a brand like Pantene to provide my hair with the nourishment it needs.”
