Mariah Carey has decided to take her talent back to the big screen. Maybe she's finally trying to make up for Glitter, which we're still feeling scarred from seven years later. Vivendi Entertainment acquired the rights to Tennessee, which debuted at the Tribeca Film Festival this past Spring.
The film is about two brothers who set out in search of their estranged father, hoping that he will aid in saving their leukemia-stricken sibling. They meet a waitress, played by Mariah, along the way, whose dreams of a singing career have been crushed by her bad marriage. That's a far cry from Glitter!
In addition to her starring role in the film, Mariah contributes heavily on the soundtrack, including the original ballad Right to Dream, which she co-wrote with Willie Nelson.
