Last January, we first learned that a biopic of Aretha Franklin was in the works with Jennifer Hudson signed on to play the Queen of Soul. Well, now, since her passing, it has definitely become a priority to get the project moving forward. According to Clive Davis, Aretha, wanted Jennifer for the project and it is definitely moving forward even though she has passed.
Harvey Mason Jr., one of Aretha's long time producers said that they "are going forward and making the movie that Aretha wanted to make.”
We're hoping we hear something soon!
