She had a bit part as an opera singer in The Bachelor, which stars Chris

For some time now Mariah has also been involved in a project with the title
All That Glitters, supposedly based on a concept developed by Mariah. Mariah
will star and sing in the movie, which has now been filmed. The story is not
meant to be autobiographical, although it may borrow from some aspects of
Mariah Carey's life and rise to fame.
All That Glitters has finished post-production and is expected to be released
shortly. The Internet Movie Database has additional information on this
Some details have now emerged about the film. Initial reports (now several
years old) on the director and production arrangements were based on old

Columbia TriStar (Sony Entertainment) now own the rights and will distribute
Mariah plays Billie, an up and coming singing sensation, who rises from the
ashes, facing adversity and striving against the odds to make a place for
herself in the cutthroat entertainment business. Sound familiar? Directed by
Vondie Curtis-Hall (writer/director Gridlock'd) and written by Kate Lanier
(writer What's Love Got To Do With It, Set It Off and The Mod Squad), the
production showcases new talent itself in its actors, and also includes
rapper Da Brat in the supporting cast.
Mariah was also cast as the step-daughter of the arch-villan in "Double-0-
Soul". The movie was supposed to be an action comedy starring Chris Tucker.
In the movie, Tucker's character is a bungling secret-agent, suddenly saddled
with the age old task of saving the world after all the top agents are taken
out. An acceptable script for the film failed to surface, so the movie is now
dead in the water.
