Oprah Winfrey, Quincy Jones & Scott Sanders Are Reviving “The Color Purple”4 months ago by Amber Le in Movie News
The Color Purple is more than just a book, or a movie, or a Broadway musical. It’s a cultural movement and Oprah Winfrey, Quincy Jones and Scott Sanders are reviving it back to life.
“We’re really excited to create a film that translates the heart and emotion we found in telling this generational story on stage. This is an incredibly powerful drama that needs to be shared.”
Back in 1985, Steven Spielberg produced and directed the film. The film was “shut out” from its 11 Oscar nominations.
In 2005, the Broadway musical earned 11 Tony nominations and in 2016, the revival brought home 2 Tony awards.
Now let’s continue the legacy of such an amazing body of work.
