The future looks bright for Jill Scott...

Jill Scott is back on her grind after having her first baby 9 months ago. Girlfriend is doing BIG THINGS in 2010 y'all!!! She has 2 movies coming out this year, is the voice of a heroine in a new BET animated series, and is releasing her 5th album while going on tour–all happening this year.

Check out a snippet from her press release courtesy of The YBF....

Scott’s next film project, Lifetime’s Sins Of The Mother which bows February 7th, revolves around a grad student who returns home to face her abusive, alcoholic mother –played by Scott—only to discover that her mom is sober and has a 3-year- old daughter and new life. Directed by Paul Kaufman and Executive produced by Damon Lee, the telepic is based on the novel Orange, Mint & Honey and adapted for television by Elizabeth Hunter.

Tyler Perry's Why Did I Get Married Too? releases April 2nd and returns Scott to the widely successful movie alongside Janet Jackson, Michael Jai White & Tyler Perry. Having their annual one-week reunion, four close couples gather together for a group vacation at the Bahamas to share news about their lives and relationships. Their intimate week in paradise is disrupted by the unexpected arrival of Sheila’s (Scott) ex-husband, Mike, who looks forward to breaking up her marriage with Troy. While Sheila deals with her problem, the others realize they too are not immune to the challenges of commitment and fidelity.

Marvel Animation and BET Networks have teamed up to create the epic animated mini-series Black Panther out mid 2010. Scott voices X-men Heroine Storm alongside Golden Globe nominated actor Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond), Kerry Washington (Last King of Scotland) & Golden Globe winning actress Alfre Woodard (American Violet).

Jill is currently in the studio recording her 5th album titled The Light Of The Sun. It’s a culmination of how her career and personal life have skyrocketed with success in Hollywood and birth of first child. The Light Of The Sun is expected to be a Spring/Summer 2010 release. She’s also hitting the 2010 Lilith Fair Tour alongside Sarah McLachlan, Mary J.Blige, Sheryl Crow, Erykah Badu, and others. (Hmmm...I thought I read somewhere that Queen Latifah was gonna be doing this tour too...) Lilith Fair is a celebration of diverse female voices across all genres.
