Queen Latifah is slated to executive produce and star in the Lifetime Original Movie, “Flint,” alongside Jill Scott, Betsy Brandt, and Marin Ireland. Inspired by the Time magazine cover story, “The Toxic Trap,” the film follows the true stories of three women from Flint, Michigan, whose justice pursuit following the lead-laden water crisis sparked a national movement for safe drinking water. Cher was initially set to play a semi-fact-based Flint resident (a composite character created specifically for her), but dropped out of the project last month. “Flint” begins production next week.
