During a recent appearance on The Tamron Hall Show on March 29th, the Harlem native discussed the honor of being handpicked by Warwick herself for this career-defining role.

“We’re already working on it,” Taylor confirmed. “We’re in the building process right now. I’ve always wanted to make sure like, I could lock in with any person that I would be playing, you know? How Angela and Tina [Turner] was, how Jamie Foxx and Ray Charles, you know what I’m saying? Like, to really get to know them and I miss when movies was like that, when you get to know them and tap in and just bond.”

She continued: “We talk almost everyday. That’s my girl.

Taylor isn’t a newcomer when it comes to the big screen. From her breakout role in 2011’s Madea’s Big Happy Family to Coming To America 2, she’s currently promoting her new film, A Thousand and One. Her latest project focuses on mothers reconnecting with their children after adoption.
