Alicia Keys Set to Direct Short Film

Alicia Keys is reportedly looking to add the title of director to her many credits. According to Deadline, the 30 year old singer/actress will direct a short film as a part of Lifetime’s original movie “Project Five.” An anthology of five short stories that explore the impact of breast cancer on people’s lives, Alicia will be joined by Jennifer Aniston, Demi Moore and Patty Jenkins.

Aniston will serve as the movie’s producer, along with “Friends” creator Marta Kauffman.

“Our hope with Project Five is to entertain, inform and inspire dialogue, research and prevention,” Aniston said in a statement. “Otherwise, our goals are small — we want these films to move people and empower those affected by breast cancer to stand tall through this challenge, which impacts ALL of our lives, no matter who we are.”

Kauffman supervised the writing of the five individual scripts by TV veterans Stephen Godshaux, Jill Gordon, Howard Morris, Deirdre O’Connor and Wendy West. A fifth director will be announced soon.

  1. Breast cancer does impact us all whether we are survivors, at risk for it, or know someone who has struggled with it or survived it. I love Lifetime, and this will sounds like a short series that will have a positive impact, and maybe inspire others.

  2. This whore isn’t fooling anyone with her Mother THeresa act anymore.

  3. Breast cancer is breast cancer it has nothing to do with anything else, if she supports it then good for her and all the ladies…I hope the series accomplishes what they want it to.

  4. Until she admits that she has also added the title of husband stealer to her list of credits, I do not plan to waste any time on this woman. She owes his former wife an apology, and she needs to say it like she means it. Then, and only then, will she be taken seriously in her endeavors.

  5. lol “husband stealer” Poor black women, i pity us. Is a man a cellphone ? How can he be stolen ? Please stop trying to pick at her artistry , you’re failing she is and will forever be the best selling African American artist of our times.

    Her and swiss are her dirty business, I don’t care about her personal life, Great move on her part, I also want to see more acting 🙂

  6. Philly is very very proud of you Alicia Keys.

  7. She doesn’t to admit or apologize for nothing.
