Queen Latifah & Mary J. Blige Join NBC's 'The Wiz Live'

Queen Latifah and Mary J. Blige have both signed on to star in NBC’s upcoming live production of the classic musical The Wiz, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The ladies join Stephanie Mills, who starred in the original Broadway production of the musical as Dorothy.

Latifah will be playing the role of the Wizard while Mary will play Evillene, the Wicked Witch of the West.

“We are so happy reuniting with Latifah,” said executive producers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron, who worked with her on Hairspray and Chicago. “We’ve been friends for a long time and we’ve had quite a lot of success together. To see her play the iconic role of the Wiz and make it her own is going to be one of the joys of producing this event.”

“I can’t wait to watch Mary bring the badness that is Evillene,” said director Kenny Leon. “Her talent range is off the charts and I know audiences won’t be able to take their eyes off her.”

“This sport is so well-filmed on television that it’s very hard to get the same feeling in the cinema on screen like Martin Scorsese did with Raging Bull. But this film is so strong and credible. We believe Jake is a boxer first. When I was watching the fight, Pacquiao vs. Mayweather, I remembered the movie. Jake is very extraordinary. Film after film he is having quite a career and this film is to me maybe one of his best,” festival delegate general Thierry Fremaux shared at the screening.

Earlier in the day, Jake and Sienna Miller were spotted hitting the Aioli lunch, which was hosted by Cannes mayor David Lisnard.
