      Alicia Keys is really getting into this movie-making thing. Her production company, Big Pita, Little Pita Prodcutions just announced that they acquired the script for “Catfish” by Chrissa Waugh. The film is based on a true story about a strong-willed black woman who stands up to a powerful corporation whose greed devastates her small Mississippi hometown. She spearheads the biggest strike in U.S. history.

      "When we created Big Pita, Little Pita we envisioned it as a place to champion voices you don’t hear every day," Keys told Variety. "Charisse has written a deeply moving script."

      There’s no word on when production will begin or if Keys will star in the movie herself. Fans are still waiting for a new album though, and Alicia has been teasing people with what’s going on at the studio at her blog .
