It seems like an almost a done deal that the eagerly anticipated biopic about soul queen, Aretha Franklin is going to happen after all and guess who is tipped to play her? Well its the superstar singer and actress Jennifer Hudson.
Now it is almost casting time as production is to begin soon and it will be produced by Scott Berstein whose last offing is the much talked-about NWA biopic Straight Outta Compton.
If Jennifer Hudson gets the role then we might be seeing another Oscar-worthy performance which is why she is being taunted to be the one for the role since its on a singer.
In a recent interview with Billboard Magazine, Aretha Franklin who backs the movie, attested to the importance of the singing on the role saying, “The singing is certainly going to be a very, very integral and important part of it.”
