*Last year there were talks about a project recounting the life of singer Florence Ballard in a film called “Blondie.”
It was rumored that Faith Evans would play Ballard and Taraji P. Henson would play the role of Diana Ross, but it looks like they are both out of the picture.
According to reports, “Blondie” will be directed by Todd Turner and the film is currently in production. Also, there’s word that Jurnee Smollet and Solange Knowles will play the roles of Florence Ballard and Diana Ross.
The story is about when “The Supremes were the most successful female vocal group in history. Only Florence Ballard, the spunky teenager who founded the group, has remained silent. Until now.”
More information to come.
