Oscar winner Hudson to play fellow Oscar winner Forest Whitaker's daughter in Winged Creatures".

Academy Award-winning Dreamgirl Jennifer Hudson's career has taken a dramatic turn.

She's playing fellow Oscar-winner Forest Whitaker's daughter in the just-started indie drama, "Winged Creatures," now shooting in Los Angeles.

Adding more Oscar gold dust to the cast is "Little Children" supporting nominee Jackie Earle Haley as an abusive husband and father. He joins co-stars Guy Pearce, Kate Beckinsale, Dakota Fanning, Embeth Daviditz and "Bridge To Terabithia's" Josh Hutcherson as people brought together after a tragic shooting in a diner. (Can anyone say "Crash?")

Pic is an adaptation of Roy Freirich's debut novel and is being produced by Robert Salerno ("21 Grams") via his Unruly Films banner

The film's director is Australian TV helmer Rowan Woods whose "Little Fish" starred another Oscar winner, Cate Blanchett, but pretty much went straight to video despite critical huzzahs down under.

He may have better luck with this newly-crowned group.
