Will Jennifer Hudson Play Aretha Franklin in New Biopic?
Jennifer Hudson's name is in circulation again and this time it isn't for her custody battle or dismantled relationship with David Otunga. Hudson is definitely going to play the "Queen of Soul" Aretha Franklin, in an up and coming biopic, according to Rolling Stone. Music Mogul Clive Davis dropped the news at his annual pre-Grammy party this past weekend.
Aretha reportedly picked Jennifer herself to play her according to Clive, as he was introducing Hudson right before her performance.
"When the biopic of the great Aretha Franklin is filmed next year, the artist anointed by Aretha herself to play her is the next performer. Aretha personally told me that last week."
If that isn't enough we all know that Jennifer will SANG for Auntie Aretha. Its only a matter of time. Production and filming for the movie, will start next week. All I know is that with Jennifer Hudson in this movie, its about to be one for the books.
