DreamWorks Pictures Releases Statement About ‘Dreamgirls’

DreamWorks Pictures has sent out a press release concerning the movie Dreamgirls:Dreamgirls is a work of fiction. It is also an homage to Motown. We used many wonderful accomplishments that belong to the rich Motown history. For any confusion that has resulted from our fictional work, we apologize to Mr. Gordy and all of the incredible people who were a part of that great legacy. It is vital that the public understand that the real Motown story has yet to be told.

Jamie Foxx Sings His Praises of ‘Dreamgirls’

It's only fitting that the career of Beyonce and Destiny's Child mirrors the career of Diana Ross and The Supremes. The Pink Panther actress is starring in the new film Dreamgirls, based on the 1960's Broadway musical.

Last night, we got the opportunity to see a small performance from the stars of the film in Downtown Los Angeles at the Orpheum Theater (yes, the same Orpheum where the ‘Hollywood Round' of American Idol is held). The production number was towards the beginning of the film, with a song called 'Steppin' To The Bad Side.' We first got to see a clip of some of the movie with Jamie Foxx singing and dancing; then we moved into the theater.
