After the success of Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman, many music biopics are in the works. One of the most anticipated is Respect.
Telling the story of the ‘Queen of Soul’ herself, Jennifer Hudson stars as Aretha Franklin.
She won’t be miming, either, for much like Taron Egerton as Elton John in Rocketman, Hudson is performing the songs herself.
Starring alongside her will be the likes of Forest Whitaker, Mary J. Blige, Marlon Wayans, Tate Donovan and Tituss Burgess.
Respect is currently scheduled for an Australian cinema release on October 8, 2020.
