 In fact, Simone’s own daughter, Lisa Kelly, chose to support What Happened, Miss Simone? instead of Mort’s forthcoming biopic.

The film chronicles Simone's struggles to balance social activism with her acclaimed music career, which included 15 Grammy nominations and legendary songs like
"Feeling Good" and "My Baby Just Cares For Me."

 Nina also touches on the isolation Simone felt living alone in France, where she met her assistant Clifton Henderson (David Oyelowo).

In addition to Zaldana, David Oyelowo (Selma) and Mike Epps (Next Friday) are set appear in Nina.
