Whitney Houston's New Film Trailer
The trailer for "Sparkle" has finally been released by Sony. The promo contains clips of Whitney Houston's final career move before her unfortunate passing this February. Inspired by The Supremes, "Sparkle" is a remake of the 1976 film of the same name, which centered on three singing teenage sisters from Harlem who form a girl group in the late 1950s. The remake takes place in Detroit, Michigan in the 1960s during the Motown era.
The film stars Jordin Sparks, Derek Luke, Whitney Houston, Mike Epps, Cee Lo Green, Carmen Ejogo, Tika Sumpter, Vickie Winans and Omari Hardwick. Additionally, R&B artist R. Kelly signed on to write original songs to augment the original song score from the 1976 film by Curtis Mayfield. The film is set to hit theaters on August 17th.
