Musical biopics are all the rage right now…Queen, Elton John, a Whitney Houston filmed called “I Want To Dance With Somebody” is in the works…and Oscar winner Jennifer Hudson is set to play the legendary Aretha Franklin. The film, which is appropriately titled “Respect” just released the first full length trailer, you can check it below.
Jennifer plays Aretha while the movie also stars Forest Whitaker, Marlon Wayans, Tate Donovan, Mary J. Blige, Audra McDonald, Marc Maron, Tituss Burgess, Saycon Sengbloh, Hailey Kilgore, Skye Dakota Turner, and more.
The movie is expected to be in theaters this December. (hopefully by then, theaters will be open!)
