Whitney Houston To Star In Upcoming 'sparkle' Film
'Sparkle', a 1976 film inspired by Diana Ross & The Supremes, is set to be remade with an all-star cast – which includes Whitney Houston, Jordin Sparks and Mike Epps. Originally meant to star Aaliyah, the movie was put on hold following her untimely death in 2001...
Pplans are re-circulating, with Sparks taking on the role of the talented daughter and Whitney expected to play the unwilling mother, uncertain and unbelieving of her daughters’ talents. Scripted by Mara Brock Akil and directed by her husband, Salim Akil, it is unsure, as of yet, when this version of the wholly inspiring story will surface.
