Default Debra Wilson Movie Update!

I spoke to Debra Wilson recently and she updated me on a number of projects that she has been working on.

Her film If I Had Known I Was A Genius premiered at the Sundance Festival this year. It is about a boy who struggles to fit in after his school determines that he possesses a genius IQ. In the movie, Debra Wilson plays Whoopi Goldberg's daughter. Whoopi was one of her biggest influences growing up, so it was really exciting for Debra to be able to work with her. If I Had Known I Was A Genius also stars Sharon Stone, Markus Redmond, Keith David and Tara Reid. It is very possible that it will be released to DVD sometime this year. Her film Lord Help Us, an indie romantic comedy about two young best friends who help a preacher earn back the respect of his church after a rumor spreads that he is eloping with a woman who is 45 years younger than him, will be released on DVD for sale and to rent on May 8th. It also stars American Idol's Nadia Turner, Joe Clair, Bill Toliver and Margaret Avery.

Debra will also be starring in a movie based on the hit MTV series My Super Sweet 16. In the film she plays the party planner. It is expected to air on MTV and hit stores sometime this July and also features teen pop stars Aly and AJ. In addition, she is on the cover of Urban Ink Magazine, on newsstands now.

In even bigger news, she is set to star in Avatar, the new James Cameron sci-fi thriller. It will be filming in the coming months and is set for release in theaters in 2009. It also stars Sigourney Weaver. Here is a description of the film from IMDB.com:
In the future, Jake, a paraplegic war veteran, is brought to another planet, Pandora, which is inhabited by the Na'vi, a humanoid race with their own language and culture. Those from Earth find themselves at odds with each other and the local culture.
It sounds like Debra Wilson is keeping herself busy. Can't wait to see what is coming up in the near future.

I've actually heard about that Thank God You're Here thing.

Anyway, that's really cool that she got to work with Whoopi. The other stuff sounds cool, too. It's great that she'll be in all of these movies.

I am so glad for Debra and always wish her the best. I noticed she has a new lat name "skeleton" doing her judging for Spike TV's new Ring Girl. Has she gotten married? If so, I am hurt because she did not tell me, her biggest fan. lol Who is the lucky person? Does this new person get along with her python, Ziggy? Best wishes, Jackee
