Spike Lee’s “Miracle at St. Anna” will close the fifth edition of the Bahamas Film Festival in Nassau on Dec. 11, reports Variety. Aaron Woodley’s “Tennessee” starring Mariah Carey will also screen at this year’s event. Sean Connery is scheduled to present Laurence Fishburne with the career achievement award.

 

       *Prince is still knocking on the doors of strangers to spread the word of Jehovah’s Witnesses. His Royal Badness tells this week’s New Yorker that since he joined the Christian denomination two years ago, he’s started leaving his gated community in Los Angeles to proselytize around the neighborhood. “Sometimes people act surprised, but mostly they’re totally cool about it,” says Prince. The singer adds that he sees his conversion as more of “a realization. It’s like Morpheus and Neo in ‘The Matrix.'”

 

       *Mark Burnett Productions and production company Maloof Television are teaming to produce a new reality series following NBA team the Sacramento Kings. “Rebuilding the Kingdom,” according to the Hollywood Reporter, will follow the franchise as it undergoes an overhaul to regain some winning traction. The production will follow the players and coaches, and the unique challenges in running an NBA team.
