Beyonce Knowles and Eva Longoria to Tip the "Velvet"

November 11, 2006 07:51:45 GMT

Beyonce Knowles and Eva Longoria have been offered to play lovers in a film adaptation of Sarah Waters' raunchy novel "Tipping the Velvet."


This no doubt will be one challenging role Beyonce Knowles and Eva Longoria ever get offered of. The beauties have both been approached to play a lesbian couple in Victorian drama feature "Tipping the Velvet", an adaptation of Sarah Waters' raunchy novel of the same title.

"Yes, it's true, we're talking about doing that," Longoria confirmed the possible involvement. "It's such a wonderful novel, a beautiful love story."

Meanwhile, Knowles considers that it is time the world was treated to a classic lesbian love story. "We've had 'Brokeback Mountain' so the time is right for this divine novel to get the same treatment," so she said.

In bringing up this project to the big screen, it is said that Sofia Coppola is set to direct and will make it as her next directorial effort after "Marie Antoinette." This tale of an 1890s music hall star and her lover actually had been turned into life by BBC TV in 2002 with Geoffrey Sax at helm and Andrew Davies penning the script.

who are u to say its wrong. love is beutifull and thats what this movie is about. I respect u'r opinion, because u'r entitled to one. But ry to have some respect for her and a little more class for the other 10 percent of people who are like that allready around u. If anything i'm proud of her it would take a bold person to play this role and if she does she'll have gained my even more of my respect than she allready has.

I think this is completely disgusting! This world is completely moraless and corrupt! Next hollywood will promote sleeping with animals and ur own mother, because "it's a beautiful love story". These celebs r slaves 4 money. Hey beyonce why don't u make a love story between u and ur dog. Sad. I've lost all respect 4 u beyonce. This will b the downfall of both of their careers! They will regret this!!!
