Zoe Saldana - Nina Simone

The Official Nina Poster Is Here

Entertainment Weekly has released an exclusive look at the official poster for Nina, the Nina Simone biopic starring Zoe Saldana.

The Cynthia Mort-directed film is slated to be released in theaters and VOD on April 22.

As you may know, casting Zoe to portray the “High Priestess of Soul” ruffled quite a few feathers.

The Guardians of the Galaxy actress told BET she turned down the role for a year, but she eventually agreed when people who were “more physically right for the part” passed on the opportunity.

Zoe Saldana shared, “If people would have known the whole story about what happened, they might have a different point of view. I did give it thought, and at the end of the day, I’m proud of my decision.”
