Queen Latifah has signed on to star in HBO Films' "Life Support," a telefilm that centers on the HIV crisis in the black community. The actress also will executive produce the HBO project with Oscar winner Jamie Foxx ("Ray"), Jaime King ("Ray"), Marcus King (WB Network's "The Jamie Foxx Show"), Shakim Compere ("Beauty Shop") and Emmy nominee Shelby Stone (HBO's "Lackawanna Blues").
