Beyoncé writing, acting in film about Saartjie Baartman


This 3 January 2016 video from the USA says about itself:

Beyoncé Will Reportedly Star in Her Own Movie, about Saartjie Baartman

From Vulture.com in the USA:

Beyoncé Is Writing and Starring in a Movie About Saartjie Baartman

By Greg Cwik …

Queen Béy, the biggest pop star of the still-young millennium, wants to be taken seriously as an actress. A decade ago (!) she appeared in the third Austin Powers film, Goldmember, in which she was quite fun, but her next film will be considerably more serious: She’s penning a script for a film about Saartjie Baartman (nicknamed the Hottentot Venus), a South African woman and one of two famous Khoikhoi women who were paraded and displayed in 19th-century London freak shows for their big buttocks and elongated labia. There’s no word yet as to when Beyoncé‘s film will shoot or be released, but you can rest assured that it will be a hit. Béy hive, assemble!

UPDATE: This was denied later.
