Jennifer Hudson To Play Aretha Franklin In Biopic

Jennifer Hudson has bagged her next big movie role where she will again put her talents to use playing a singer. Not just any ol’ singer, however…

According to Variety, Hudson will be embodying the role of Aretha Franklin in an upcoming biopic produced by “Straight Outta Compton” executive Scott Bernstein.

Clive Davis personally tapped Hudson to play the iconic singer and made the big announcement at his pre-Grammy party that honored Jay-Z.

What do you think? Is JHud the right choice to bring Aretha to life on the silver screen?
