“Sparkle”, Whitney Houston‘s last movie and said to be her acting comeback is going to be released earlier than its planned August release date because of the singer’s untimely death.
Dates are being discussed, a studio insider tells RadarOnline, because the studio knows the singer’s fans will want to see her remarkable performance in this movie. Money is not an issue behind the decision. The IMDB site for the movie received high traffic in the wake of the singer’s death.
The movie is still in post-production the source revealed, but it could be released on Memorial Day. The source says that studio bosses want Houston’s fans to remember what a brilliant performer she was. They are going to be sensitive about her death and talk to the family about their plans when the time is right.
In the movie, Houston plays the mother to Jordin Spark‘s character who is trying to break into show business as part of a trio. It is loosely based on a 1976 movie, which in turn was loosely based on the story of The Supremes.
