Rehearsals are already underway for the remake of famed 1976 musical ‘Sparkle’. The Whitney Houston-headed production is starring (from left to right) Carmen Ejogo, Jordin Sparks, and Jason Derulo’s ‘It Girl’ Tika Sumpter.
Said to be snapped on the trio’s first day of rehearsals, the ladies are prepping to join an illustrious cast of movers and shakers for the film including Cee Lo Green, Omari Hardwick, Mike Epps, Derek Luke, and of course, Miss Whitney Houston.
As reported yesterday, famed R&B singer-songwriter R. Kelly has been tapped to create an original score for the movie’s accompanying soundtrack.
Shooting reportedly begins next month.
