Interview with Forest Whitaker from BlackFilm.com -
Are you going to get in the director's chair again?
FW: Next year in April I'm going to direct Satchmo, the Louis Armstrong Biopic. I am going to play the character. I won't play the whole of it, it starts when he's born. But a couple of people will be performing the character.
Have you done any casting?
FW: I haven't cast the movie. I probably shouldn't be talking about it because I'm still in the budgeting stages. I have ideas for casting, but I feel that as of now, every person I've approached to be on the crew who has read the script has attached themselves to it.
