Janet Jackson Becomes A Film Producer

We’re all part of a Cinema Nation.

44-year-old singer-actress Janet Jackson has signed a production deal with Lionsgate to develop big screen projects which she will produce.

Lionsgate president Mike Paseornek tells femalefirst.co.uk that “She has a powerful onscreen presence, with a vast audience, and we believe she will be an equally powerful presence behind the scenes. We are honored to be able to provide a home for her ideas, passion and immense talent”

Jackson started out as an actress before she became a singer, serving as a regular on three TV shows in the late 70’s and early 80’s – “Good Times,” “Diff’rent Strokes” and “Fame”. Then her singing career took off and she has popped up sporadically ever since in the likes of “Poetic Justice”, “The Klumps” and more recently three Tyler Perry movies.
