jennifer hudson aretha franklin biopic

Jennifer Hudson has been tapped by MGM to star in an upcoming Aretha Franklin biopic, according to sources.

The big news was allegedly revealed during Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party, and Clive said Franklin had “personally selected” Hudson for the role.

The film will be produced by Scott Bernstein (“Straight Outta Compton”) and music producer Harvey Masons.

Will she do the Queen of Soul justice?


  1. Jennifer probably will, but I’m wondering will it be a watered down bio cause Ritha has a very ‘rich’, interesting history, hmmmmm.

      • Aretha had sex with her dad, they day her dad gave her first son anf they say Sam Cooke is arerhad second son father Aretha denied it but that dude looks like Sam.Cooke

        Hell.I can believe Sam tapped aretha

        Arethas mom.died when she was 16 I believe, her dad was a bisexual.ho.who.impregnated a 13 year old girl in jesus name amen

  2. Looks like Aretha is bout to die just like they did ray Charles they did a film on him with Jamie then released it after his death so the Aretha flick will be released after her dearh kind of odd Clive survived his proteges who are younger than he is

    • Lol. For real!

      He probably survived by drinking blood at those spirit cookings!! Lol.

        • They murdered whitney and bobbi kris…

          Also this chicks fam and lord knows how they tortured her nephew before they killed him…all for her to be the next whit….smfh.

  3. Same stories over and over … same actors over and over…. same tragic scripts over and over….nothing has changed in all these years.

  4. Wonder which Masons, SR. or Jr.???

    “Harvey Jay Mason Jr. (born June 3, 1968) is an American record producer, songwriter and movie producer.

    Either way Aretha better stay prayed up, you now what Chaka said when you are worth more dead than you are alive…

  5. Aretha already dying of cancer damn can they make a bio without somebody dead or bout to die

    I forgot the occult celebrates dearh
