The singer, who is pregnant with twins, WILL headline the festival in 2018 -- so at least the BeyHive has that!
In a statement to The Associated Press on Thursday, Bey's Parkwood Entertainment and festival producer Goldenvoice said:
No surprises here, given the fact that the original Waiting to Exhale soundtrack is topping the music charts!
Back in May, we were pleased to hear that a Waiting to Exhale sequel was happening, and that the entire original cast would be returning.
Now, Fox has announced that they'll still be moving forward with the Exhale sequel, even though Whitney Houston has passed away.
"I don’t think she would want it to. It’s almost in her honor that we think to soldier on."
And here's more from Gabler on replacing Whitney in the movie:
"We literally have not talked about anybody for that part. Forest, I know, is just…grieving. He’d been the one who was speaking with her, updating [Houston] on its progress."
We just hope that the studio puts A LOT of care into this movie. Whoever replaces Whitney in her role will have some HUUUUGE shoes to fill.
What do U think? Should they still make this sequel without Whitney???
