Aretha Franklin Biopic Put on Hold

Aretha Franklin Biopic Put on Hold

After all the hubub over casting – Halle Berry, Jennifer Hudson, Nia Long, Kerry Washington – it looks like Aretha Franklin's life story may not make it to the big screen any time soon.

The Queen of Soul revealed to the press at her 70th birthday celebration this weekend that the project was put on hold, says BET.

“It’s in a limbo position,” said Franklin. “It’s just a lot going on.”

Although in early stages, the biopic seemed like a go back in January, when Franklin was scheduled to meet with directors and financiers.

Interested to see how this one turns out and whether the much-discussed biopic will happen soon, or at least during Franklin's lifetime.
