The Hollywood Reporter reports that Whitney Houston is making her triumphant return to movies with Sparkle. Her last film was 1996's The Preacher's Wife, so it's been quite some time since Whit's been on the big screen.
Houston is supposedly in negotiations to star in Sparkle, which is Sony Pictures' remake of the 1976 music-themed drama. The original was inspired by the story of The Supremes. It followed the three Williams sisters, who begin singing in their church choir in Harlem in the late 1950s and went on to become a successful girl group. Their sudden rise to fame causes their personal lives to unravel. It's the trade off of success, you know?
Former American Idol winner Jordin Sparks and actor Mike Epps are set to star, as well.
