Aretha Franklin Is In Talks With Lifetime About Her Biopic

By  |  7 Comments

With all this talk of biopics and family issues, it is refreshing that the future is looking bright for legendary soul singer Aretha Franklin’s Lifetime biopic.

Franklin’s biopic has been underway for years, and she has been heavily involved in its production. Her main concern is being represented in the best way possible.

On Saturday, Ms. Franklin met with Lifetime to discuss potential actresses who would play the leading role although it seems as if her heart is set on award-winning actress/singer Audra Ann McDonald.

Amongst the group of people that Franklin met with besides Lifetime were Clive Davis, Suzanne De Passe, and Taylor Hackard. Each person added input that would be essential in helping choose who would be the best candidate to play Franklin’s character.

Franklin is still open to more options on who will play her character, but her top two are Audra McDonald and Jennifer Hudson.

    So wonderful that the Queen of Soul is a living legend doing her own Biopic and someone is not doing it for her posthumously. God bless you, Ma’am. I’ve been following your music for 40 years and still can’t get enough. Most graciously, DrPj
