We’ve seen a lot of brand new film projects come to life within the world of faith, ministry and religion. Some have slipped under the radar while others have proven to be box office hits. With movie magic happening all over the world, here comes word of the highly respected Bishop T.D. Jakes and his latest onscreen ministry move.

The world renowned pastor and spiritual leader is producing a soon-to-be-released film and it’s star is actually a familiar face we’ve already seen earlier this month. Paula Patton, who can be seen currently cutting up onscreen in the newly released “Just Wright” is said to be in negotiations to lead us all straight to the alter in the wedding-themed comedy, “Jumping the Broom.” Shooting begins this summer in Nova Scotia and chronicles family drama like you wouldn’t expect.

The storyline follows the clash of two black families from opposite ends of the socioeconomic background at a weekend wedding in Martha’s Vineyard. Patton would play the female lead of the wealthier family once plans for the actress’ involvement are confirmed. For more on the story, click the link and visit BlackChristianNews.com today.

So Cincinnati, are you excited about this one? As a huge fan of Paula Patton and her multi-dimensional efforts onscreen, this should be another great project to add to her resume. She is already a force to reckon with. The only thing I’m afraid of is whether or not we’ll get the same zest from the writers of the film.

This particular story already sounds vaguely familiar, but I’m hoping there are enough plot twists and unique storytelling to compel us to watch the movie in theaters and buy the DVD when it eventually hits stores.

Were you all fans of the other films Bishop T.D. Jakes had a hand in creating, producing or directing? To refresh your memory, first there was “Woman Thou Art Loosed,” which examined the life story of a young woman who comes to terms with a long history of sexual abuse, drug addiction and poverty. Remember that one from back in 2004? The film, which is also a self-help book of spiritual enrichment tools meant for those who’ve gone through the same life experiences written by Bishop T.D. Jakes, starred actresses Kimberly Elise and Loretta Divine and was also the recipient of the Best Film award at the American Black Film Festival the year of its release.

Or maybe you took your family out for a night at the theaters to see “Not Easily Broken” just last winter? That film took a bold, breath-taking look at marriage and relationships through the eyes of its co-stars Morris Chestnut and Taraji P. Henson, a couple who endure the struggle of disagreeing on what true happiness, success, and love really are just before their breaking point. Receiving mixed reviews, the 2009 film was actually a very good one to say the least, but if you didn’t see it, we won’t spoil it.
