Rapper, singer, songwriter, actress, and producer Queen Latifah was seen today on Jersey Avenue shooting a scene for her upcoming crime drama “The Equalizer.”
According to flyers posted in the Van Vorst Park neighborhood where shooting is taking place, The Equalizer “chronicles the protagonist, an enigmatic woman and single mother, with a mysterious background who uses her extensive skills to help those with nowhere else to turn, acting as a guardian angel and a defender for those who cannot defend themselves while pursuing her own redemption.”
The flyer advises that The Equalizer is scheduled to film at a private residence in the Van Vorst Park area.
Latifah is well acquainted with Jersey City. Born in Newark, Latifah owned a historic firehouse in the Powerhouse Arts District which she sold in 2015.
