Mariah Carey’s New Movie in December
She might be one of the best singers in the world, but Mariah Carey’s debut movie “Glitter” back in 2001, was nowhere near glitterly success. But apparently, Carey is one actress who didn’t afraid to give her acting career a second chance.
The “Touch My Body” singer will return to theaters in December, with her drama “Tennessee”, which had already been premiered at this spring’s Tribeca Film Festival in New York. Vivendi Entertainment has acquired all domestic rights to the road trip drama.
“Tennessee” told a story about two lower-middle class brothers (Adam Rothenberg, Ethan Peck) who take to the road to resolve their economic and health challenges. Along the way they meet a waitress (Carey) whose dreams of a singing career have been dashed by a bad marriage. Hmmm… inspired from Carey’s own previous life, I guess.
Unlike “Glitter”, the movie was not a musical, but did features Carey performing the original ballad “Right to Dream,” which she co-wrote with Willie Nelson. The song was penned specially for the movie.
Her first appearance in a movie, was as an opera singer in the 1999′s romantic comedy “The Bachelor”, starring Chris O’Donell. After the unsatisfying “Glitter”, Carey co-starred with Mira Sorvino as waitresses at a mobster-operated restaurant in the independent film, “WiseGirls” (2002), which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Her role as Raychel got warm welcome from the U.S. Critics, Carey got several praises for her efforts.
38-year-old Carey also once appeared in the TV series “Ally McBeal,” and her latest act is when she had a cameo role as herself in Adam Sandler’s comedy “You Don’t Mess with the Zohan”, released last June. Good luck for “Tennessee”, Mimi!
