Beyonce Eyes Up Jay-Z

Beyonce isn’t looking like she’s having too much fun watching Jay-Z play poker. She probably would have chosen something else do to in her downtime from shooting Dreamgirls, which opens December 22nd.

Shooting for the film, which is being directed by Academy Award winner Bill Condon, began Jan. 9 at the Palace Theatre in downtown Los Angeles. The motion picture will be distributed domestically by DreamWorks and internationally by Paramount.

“Dreamgirls” stars Jennifer Hudson as Effie, Beyoncé Knowles as Deena Jones, Anika Noni Rose as Lorrell Robinson, Jamie Foxx as Curtis Taylor Jr., Eddie Murphy as James “Thunder Early” and Danny Glover as Marty. Condon also wrote the film’s screenplay based on the late Tom Eyen’s book. The film employs the original score by Eyen and Henry Krieger.
