The 31-year-old Academy award winning actress will play a single mother in the project, reported Contactmusic. The film is a retelling of the nativity story. "He came to the set quite a bit, actually. He put himself in the film as one of the extras.
He is a little industry baby. He sits in the director's chair and puts on the headphones," Hudson said. Forest Whitaker and Angela Bassett will play Hudson's parents in the film. "I love them so much. I looked up to them as a kid. And now that they are my mother and father; that's too much," she added.
