[photogallerylink id=13011 align=left]We just got news that [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Janet Jackson[/lastfm] has signed a new movie deal with Lionsgate Entertainment to produce a movie of her choice. With Janet’s extensive television, movie and musical background, this movie that she’s gonna put out in the future should be a very interesting piece of footage.

According to Hiphopwired.com:

Janet Jackson has signed a movie deal with Lionsgate Entertainment to select, develop and produce one feature film for the popular independent studio, according to reports.

“I have been fortunate to work in the film industry, though not as much as I would like,” Janet tells the Hollywood Reporter. “I have a passion for storytelling, and have been doing it through my music for some time.”

The deal comes after Janet has recently built a good rapport with the studio having starred in three Tyler Perry films (Why Did I Get Married?, Why Did I Get Married, Too? and For Colored Girls) under the Lionsgate umbrella.

Being a Janet fan myself, I have yet to see anything outside of a possible video that she may have produced to have Lionsgate put this much trust and money behind an unproven movie producer. Her name alone isn’t a guarantee that the movie will be a success.

How about a little old school Janet.
