The first poster from the upcoming Sparkle film, starring Jordin Sparks and Whitney Houston has been revealed. On the artwork, Sparks takes the limelight as she is shown looking up while donning a red diva gown, arms out, with a microphone in one hand. Pictured at the bottom of the poster are other cast members including the late Whitney Houston, Cee-Lo Green and Mike Epps.
Sparkle is a remake of the 1976 music-themed film of the same title, which was inspired by the story of The Supremes. It follows the journey of the three Williams sisters, who begin singing in Harlem in the late 1950 before finding fame as a girl group. Their sudden rise, however, unravels their personal lives.
The film also marks the late Whitney Houston’s return to the big screen since 1996’s “The Preacher’s Wife”. She will play a “not-so encouraging mother” to Sparks.
