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.

But if you’ve been paying attention to our posts on the matter, you’ll know that absolutely NOTHING has been confirmed. 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. L. Franklin; that Terence Howard had agreed to play Smokey Robinson; Nia Long as her sister Erma Frankin; Blair Underwood as her brother and long-time manager Cecil Franklin.
