Fantasia To Star In 'Color Puple' MovieR&B songstress Fantasia has revealed that she has been tapped to star in the second movie adaptation of ‘The Color Purple’ following her stint as Celie in the Broadway version of show last year:

“We haven’t started yet because I’m going to work on my album. I think it’s fair that I committed myself, and promised that after I finish going on a tour, I’ll be ready to come back and commit myself to Miss Celie again,” Fantasia explained. “I miss my music”

So impressed with her command of the role, Oprah & Co. are going to wait for Fantasia to be ready before moving ahead with the movie to musical to movie musical adaptation, the singer beamed.

“They’re going to work with me. They don’t have to [but] that’s a favor,” Fantasia said. “Working with someone like Miss Oprah who’s so talented and amazing – It’s a blessing.” {Source}

I’m definitely looking forward to this. With the original ‘The Color Purple’ movie being one of my all-time favourites, I’m anticipating what this new adaptation will be serving up – especially since it’s a musical.

Your thoughts?

    I saw her on Broadway and she tore that damn stage down, so I really can’t wait for the movie musical.

    Fantasia is incredible in this role. If done right, she will almost definitely get Oscar attention.
