Can’t Get Enough of Gabrielle Union
Being Mary Jane” may be winding down with a two-hour finale movie next year, but Gabrielle Union is anything but. Presently, she’s on a book tour to promote her new book, “We’re Going to Need More Wine,” a collection of essays about sexuality, race, beauty, Hollywood, and what it means to be a modern woman.
In her fourth outing as a producer, she has teamed with filmmaker Will Packer for “Breaking In”, a film in which she stars as a woman who fights to protect her family during a home invasion. Union is also teaming with LeBron James to exec produce a comedy series for ABC, titled “White Dave” and based on the life of director David E. Talbert (First Sunday, Almost Christmas, Baggage Claim). The ABC series will center in on a black teen raised in an all-white neighborhood who suffers culture shock when his mom remarries and they relocate to an all-black neighborhood. Also in the works is a TV series built around the character she played in Bad Boys II as the love interest of Will Smith, the sister of Martin Lawrence’s character, and an undercover DEA agent. And in case you're wondering about the possibility of a “Bad Boys 3”, I wouldn’t take any bets on it. It was pulled from Sony’s 2018 release schedule over the summer, leading Martin Lawrence to say he doubted that it would happen. The holdup: reportedly Will Smith’s schedule.
