Beyoncé In Negotiations For “The Lion King”

It looks like Jon Favreau, the director of the live-action remake of The Lion King, may get his wish of Beyoncé voicing the future Queen of Pride Rock, Nala.

According to the Beyhive Team, a social media page and site that receives “exclusive” news regarding the entertainer, Beyoncé is reportedly in final negotiations to voice the lioness, and is also signing on to manage the film’s soundtrack.

“Disney has reportedly agreed to pay a whopping $25 million to secure Beyoncé’s involvement with the project,” the post says. In addition to being the soundtrack’s producer, Bey will also curate and produce “African-inspired” and “tribal” recordings, in addition to producing updated versions of the movie’s beloved songs.

“The soundtrack will be released worldwide through Parkwood Entertainment & Columbia Records (SONY),” says the Beyhive Team.
