Oscar-nominated actress Taraji P. Henson (she played the woman who adopted the baby Benjamin Button in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button") has lined up a Lifetime TV movie according to Deadline.com.
The casting is in keeping with Lifetime’s recent successes with big-name actors, including Shirley MacLaine in "Coco Chanel" and Joan Allen in "Georgia O’Keeffe," both Emmy-nominated projects.
Henson is currently in movie theaters as Jaden Smith’s mom in the remake of "The Karate Kid.”
The TV movie is called "Taken From Me: The Tiffany Rubin Story," and quite the typical Lifetime project. It combines family drama with elements of a spy thriller as it tells the story of a Queens schoolteacher who traveled to Korea in an attempt to rescue her abducted son.
