Producer Debra Martin Chase, Sony Pictures, and Mara Brock Akil and her husband Salim Akil who are the creative team behind the hit BET series ‘The Game’, are set to remake the 1976 urban classic film ‘Sparkle’ which chronicled the ups and downs of a rising R&B trio.
This is one of my favorite movies and I am excited for the remake.
If I were director here is who I’d cast as some of the main characters:
Note:If I had to pick two out of the four it would be between Regina King or Taraji P. Henson
The character Sister is going to be a difficult one to cast…based on the fact the actress has to pull off being strung on drugs and actually making us believe in her role. I would say a new face would suffice but then again..so many directors cast these new faces and end up BUTCHERING THE REMAKES!!! The only actress I can see playing her right now is HALLE BERRY hands DOWN! She is the best actresses out there that can really bring out a character! I loved her in Losing Isaiah!
The question is can she do the singing part???
There are sooo many talented and amazing african american actresses out there so I am excited to see who will be chosen for this remake!!!
