Cee Lo Green is now a part of the production as a cast member and of course he’ll most likely sing on the soundtrack. He’ll be joining Jordin Sparks who will play the title role and Whitney Houston who will be her mother.
Others include Carmen Ejogo and Tika Sumpter who will play the sisters that together rise up as stars in the Motown-era.
Green will play the role of their opening act while Omari Hardwick will be the sexy love interest for one of the sisters. Derek Luke and Mike Epps are also a part of the cast.
Oh, and we can’t forget R. Kelly is in charge of the music for the soundtrack.
Rehearsals have begun and filming will start in October.
