After the fairly elegant first look arrived for Lee Daniels‘ The Butler, one expected the helmer to be headed in a very different route — especially considering his last wild project. But judging from this latest still, he’s certainly got some surprises in store. Below one can see a picture Oprah Winfrey tweeted from her last day of shooting, smoking up next to Terrence Howard, in quite a transformation for the entertainment maven. She also adds the message, “And THAT’s a Wrap! Terrance Howard and me in our goodbye”love scene”. Thanks Lee Daniels for the great experience. #theButler”
Winfrey and Howard star alongside Forest Whitaker, Liam Neeson, Alan Rickman, Jane Fonda, John Cusack, Liev Schreiber, Nicole Kidman, Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Minka Kelly, Lenny Kravitz, Alex Pettyfer, Robin Williams, and Mariah Carey in the film following Eugene Allen, the White House servant. Scripted by Danny Strong, the project chronicles Allen’s life as servant to eight different presidents, spanning 34 years. He was born in 1919 and passed away just a few years ago in March 2010.

Expect a 2013 release for The Butler via The Weinstein Company.
