BUMP.

Looks like "Million Dollar Baby" has beaten this other boxing film to the punch and maybe will finally net Freeman that Oscar he deserves.

God, that would by far be the best moment of the Oscar ceremony; you know Freeman would get one helluva long standing ovation.

Morgan Freeman to star as Mandela

Morgan Freeman will play former South African President Nelson Mandela in "The Human Factor," an independently financed drama, based on the upcoming John Carlin book "The Human Factor: Nelson Mandela and the Game That Changed the World."

Freeman, who this weekend reprises his role as God, alongside Steve Carell in the Tom Shadyac-directed "Evan Almighty," will produce the Mandela film with his Revelations Entertainment partner Lori McCreary and Mace Neufeld. South African scribe Anthony Peckham ("Don't Say a Word") wrote the script.

Pic is set after the fall of apartheid, when South Africa was host to the 1995 Rugby World Cup. Mandela was in his first term as South African president, and he used the event as a way to end decades of mistrust and hatred between whites and blacks.

Freeman and McCreary traveled to South Africa last year to discuss the project with Mandela.

"I have known Nelson Mandela personally for quite some time, and am continually in awe of his enormous presence in the world," Freeman said. "The opportunity to portray him in this film is a great honor."

Freeman recently completed starring in the Rob Reiner-directed "The Bucket List" for Warner Bros.

Revelations recently produced "10 Items or Less" and made it the first broadband movie premiere through its online distribution venture ClickStar. The company is in post-production with Lakeshore Entertainment on "Feast of Love," which stars Freeman and will be distributed later this year by MGM.
