Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin Announces Green Light on Her Biopic

Written by Jae Jones

The Queen of Soul has announced her new upcoming biopic. The biopic has faced delays due to negotiations, but it was reported that the deal is ready to be signed. Plans for this project have been in play since 2011 and now the green light has been given to move forward.

There are some things still unknown to the public, such as who will play Franklin in the biopic. However, some big names in entertainment have been thrown out, such as Halle Berry, Jennifer Hudson, and Audra McDonald. For now, we need to wait and see who will be Franklin’s choice. Rumors are swirling that Franklin’s father in the film will be played by none other than Denzel Washington, but all of that will be revealed at a later date.

The biopic will be based on the Franklin’s upbringing and legendary career. It will also shed light on her abusive marriage to Ted White and other personal relationships she had along the way.
