Whitney Houston's Final Movie Sparkle Will STILL Get Released This August!

whitney houston movie getting released

This may be difficult to watch, but it will be nice to get one last opportunity to see Whitney on the big screen!

Last month, we got a first look at Whitney Houston in her upcoming movie Sparkle (above), and we were pleased to see that she was looking REALLY good. Sigh.

As we mentioned before, the movie is a remake of the 1976 film about a group of singing sisters.

Whitney had said the following about the movie at the time:

"Part of the fun of making this movie is definitely the costumes and the hairstyles. The movie is set in 1963, and we had a great wardrobe, hair and makeup person and I loved wearing the outfits."

We're so glad she had such a good time making the movie, and we're very happy to hear that Sony Pictures will be releasing Sparkle as planned on August 17th.

Here's what studio spokesman Steve Elzer had to say about it:

"Like all those who knew and loved her, we are shocked and saddened and the world has lost an incomparable talent. Right now our thoughts are with her daughter, her family and her friends."

And more from the movie's executive producer Howard Rosenman:

"This would have been a big, big comeback, she is so brilliant in it. I was just raving about her performance, she was so great in it. I'm just in shock."

We'll be sure to see this one as soon as it comes out. We have a feeling it will be a VERY crowded theater…

    Yeah, what a shocker, they will still put it out anyway. Your such a fucking retard. Of course they will. They will make tons of money. Just like the re-release of all of her music will, just like the tribute concerts, and documentaries. Can't wait for the black entertainment industry to tell us how much they loved her, and how she was the greatest ever. Yeah, that's next, she's the femail michael jackson. Someone no one wanted much to do with but since they died, everyone is acting like they were so close to her.

    Enough already with all your slobbering all over yourself
    This was not Mother Teresa, this was not Judy Garland, it was Whitney
    In her day she was good, but that day was a long, long time ago

    So I guess the movie is going to undeservedly hit the top of the box office over more worthy films *sigh*.
