Submitted by on July 9, 2007 – 9:14 am8 Comments


According to EURWeb, Beyoncé is being considered for the lead role in the feature film adaptation of Aida.

Aida tells the story of a Nubian princess who is captured by an Egyptian captain named Radames. After falling for her, he saves her from a life of hard labor by placing her as a handmaiden to the Egyptian princess Amneris, his future bride.

The role of Aida has been played on Broadway by R&B divas including Toni Braxton, Michelle Williams (of Destiny’s Child) and Heather Headley.

If she scores the role, Aida will be Beyoncé’s follow-up to her breakout role as Deena Jones in Dreamgirls, another musical film.
