IceCream role of a lifetime–Halle Berry set to play Aretha Franklin
Halle Berry wants a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T…
The Oscar winner is set to play Aretha Franklin in a movie about her life. Aretha had hand-chosen Halle Berry to play her in her biopic, and her’s what she had to say about it:
“For the last four years, we’ve been talking about [the film], and I have had a number of offers. Unfortunately, they were not good offers,” (via MTV). “Now, we have something on the table. They have all of the financing on one project and the second project, and he’s in the process of writing things for me to approve on the tele-film.”
Halle Berry joins a list of A-list stars who have played singers on the big screen..we all remember Beyonce’ as Etta James, Reese Witherpoon as June Carter Cash, and our favorite; Jamie Foxx as Ray Charles.
This should be good!
