Los Angeles — Somebody needs to have a chat with Ms Aretha Franklin… she’s been pushing for Halle Berry to play her in a film based on the Queen of Soul’s life; a few other media outlets have even gone as far as to say that it’s been confirmed that Halle will be starring in the film, per Aretha.

Any discussion about Halle playing Aretha in a movie are almost solely the Queen of Soul’s desires – wishful thinking on her part; and the same could probably be said about Ms Franklin’s claims that Denzel Washington told her that he’s “open to playing” her father, Reverend C.
