It turns out...
"I don't know when that's going to go down of if that's going to go down," Harold Perrineau, who's set play Sammy Davis Jr. in the film, recently told us while promoting his new movie Seeking Justice (in theaters now). "I'm excited about it if it actually happens."
Perrineau says he's still waiting to get a call from director Matthew Wilder since first reading the film's script last year.
"It's a rough story," he said. "I imagine it's going to be hard to watch."
As for the sex factor, Perrineau explained, "There's lots of risqué scenes, but whether people would think they're sexy because of the set-up? That's going to be interesting. There's tons of risqué stuff, how you get there, that's definitely a different question."
Akerman recently told Access Hollywood, "We're still waiting on the financing to come in, so hopefully it will come soon...we gotta hurry up!"
"I am ready to roll, absolutely," she continued. "It's a very dark story of her life as an abused woman and it will be a dark place to go into, but I'm looking forward to it."
