The late Aretha Franklin is next in line for entertainers/bands having biopics made about their life. The popular biopic "Bohemian Rhapsody" featuring the band Queen's start and journey seemed to have sparked a chain reaction of biopics being ushered out. We have "Rocket Man" highlighting the life of Elton John, then Motley Crue's "The Dirt", and Lynyrd Skynyrd's "Street Survivors".
Aretha's biopic about her life starting out as a young child singing in her father's church choir to her Grammy award winning career is being titled "Respect" and is expected to hit theaters in August of 2020. The actress and singer that will be playing Aretha is the powerhouse vocalist Jennifer Hudson.
Mark your calendars for August 14th, 2020 when "Respect" is coming to a theater near you!
