Entertainment tonight got a sneak peak at the sexy thriller and it looks interesting. For those of you outta the loop, Beyonce and Idris Elba star as man and wife in the new film, and their marriage is put to the test when Idris’ character finds himself entangled in a love affair with a crazy temp. Ali Larter looks to be playing the heck out of her role and we all know how well Idras dominates the screen when he is seen. So how does Beyonce do in the movie, for the first time in her career not playing a singer? Well, I’ll leave that up to you all to decide.
Singer Beyonce Knowles was spotted earlier today on the set of her new movie “Obsessed”. As previously reported
, Beyonce plays the role of a loving wife and mother whose life is turned upside when her husband is stalked by an obsessive office temp. The film is still in the early stages of filming and also star actor Idris Elba and Ali Landry, who was a regular on Eve’s short lived television series.
Beyonce Knowles, Ali Larter and Idris Elba will star in “Obsessed,” a thriller that Screen Gems will put into production this summer. Steve Shill will direct a script by David Loughery. Will Packer produces, and Knowles will be exec producer along with her father, Mathew Knowles. Screen Gems topper Clint Culpepper is finalizing cast deals, working with Knowles’ and Larter’s reps to iron out scheduling kinks. Knowles is also producing and co-starring as Etta James in “Cadillac Records” for Sony BMG; Larter is working on episodes of NBC’s “Heroes. “In “Obsessed,” Elba will play an asset manager who has a knockout wife (Knowles) and thriving career until a temp office worker (Larter) begins stalking him. Knowles was last seen onscreen in “Dreamgirls,” Larter in the Screen Gems films “Resident Evil: Extinction” and “Final Destination,” and Elba last appeared in “American Gangster.” He next stars in “Prom Night” for Screen Gems.
It appears Lil Mama’sLip Gloss anthem is having an affect on not only young women, but cosmetic counters across the country as well.

So my question is, how many ladies here will admit to tossing out their lipstick in favor of lip gloss, all because of this song?
