The drama based on the life of Nina Simone is headed for Blu-ray next month.
In an early announcement to retailers, RLJ Entertainment will be releasing 'Nina' on Blu-ray on September 6.
She was one of the century's most extraordinary talents, a 15-time Grammy nominee and Grammy Hall of Fame Recipient; her mesmerizing songs and passionate politics combined to make her the unforgettable Nina Simone (Zoe Saldana). But fame and fortune came with a price, and her later years were riddled with depression, alcohol abuse and isolation. Rediscovering the meaning of her life and work took courage, strength and one true friend: Clifton Henderson (David Oyelowo), the man who started out as her assistant and eventually became her loyal manager. With Clifton's encouragement, the "high priestess of soul" began a courageous journey back to her music ... and, eventually, herself.
The cast includes: Zoe Saldana (Star Trek), David Oyelowo (Selma), Mike Epps (Uncle Buck), Keith David (Greenleaf) and Ella Joyce (Being Mary Jane).
No other details have been revealed at this time.
