Respect Trailer Is Out, Jennifer Hudson Stars In Biopic On Aretha Franklin

Ravi Sharma | December, 21 2019

The first trailer for the upcoming Aretha Franklin biopic Respect has been released. The film stars Jennifer Hudson, who was picked to play Franklin by Franklin herself.

The upcoming biographical drama film directed by Liesl Tommy and It is based on the life of singer Aretha Franklin. MGM set the project in motion a year ago when it was announced that Jennifer Hudson — who won a supporting actor Oscar for “Dreamgirls” — had been personally selected for the role by Franklin. The singer has won 17 Grammy Awards, starting with “Respect” in 1968 and “Chain of Fools” in 1969.

Aretha Franklin died in August 2018. The long-lost concert film Amazing Grace was released earlier this year after being shelved for decades. In May 2020, National Geographic will release Genius: Aretha, starring Cynthia Erivo as the Queen of Soul.

The film also stars Skye Dakota Turner, Forest Whitaker, Marlon Wayans, Audra McDonald, Mary J. Blige, Saycon Sengbloh, Hailey Kilgore, Marc Maron, Tate Donovan, Tituss Burgess, and Kimberly Scott.

The film is slated for 14th August 2020 release.
