Listen up folks! The Queen of Soul has reached down into her bosom, pulled out her wish list of actors to star in a film version of her autobiography “Aretha: From These roots,” and it’s nothing short of award-winning!
In a written press release Franklin says she would love, none other than, Academy Award winners Halle Berry to play a younger version of herself, Denzel Washington to portray her father, Reverend C.L. Franklin, and Academy Award nominee Terence Howard to play some hazel-eyed, pimp-suited, smooth guy -no wait, that was every other film he’s been in – to play Smokey Robinson.
Blindie cannot wait to see Ms. Berry get down and dirty to some down south rhythm and blues!
