Sharon Leal Loves Soul Men

“Dreamgirls” and “This Christmas” actress Sharon Leal has landed the female lead in the Dimension Films comedy “Soul Men” says The Hollywood Reporter.

Samuel L. Jackson and Bernie Mac star as Louis and Floyd, two estranged former backup soul singers for a famed group who reluctantly agree to travel together for a memorial concert at the Apollo Theatre in honor of their recently deceased frontman.

Leal will play Louis’ daughter Cleo, who joins him and Floyd on their road trip and eventually becomes a singer for the band. Malcolm D. Lee helms the project.
