‘The Voice’ Whitney Houston took to Entertainment Tonight moments ago to share the latest news on her forthcoming movie production ‘Sparkle’ – a remake of the famed 1976 musical. Boasting an all star cast (Cee-Lo Green, Jordin Sparks) and R. Kelly manning the soundtrack production, the film looks to be a knockout!
Her first televised interview in quite some time, the ‘I Look To You’ belter looked stunning (to say the least) in tonight’s Entertainment Tonight exclusive.
Your view awaits after the jump:
With the film being hailed as Whitney’s “comeback” to the big screen (her first starring role in over a decade), fans and critics alike are anxious to find out if she can deliver. Certainly no stranger to criticisms, the last two years of her return to the spotlight have been greeted with mixed reviews – most of which have been lukewarm. And, with Jordin being cast to play a part originally promised to late R&B starlet Aaliyah, she too has been met with naysayers and will have quite the burden to prove herself.
Here’s hoping this film, as well as Houston’s next reported cinematic venture “Getting To Happy” (‘Waiting To Exhale’ pt 2), helps the iconic songstress reaffirm her oft-praised position.
Fans should expect ‘Sparkle’ in theaters in the coming months.
