We hope this doesn't mean that it's done for!!
The plans for the biopic about Aretha Franklin, which would be absolutely fabulous, has been put on hold until she can concentrate on it!
That's right — we need Aretha to be fully ready before this happens!!
As far as progress goes, the film really didn't get past a "wish list" of actors for the role: Kerry Washington, Nia Long and Blair Underwood. Aretha was set to meet with a director and financiers to discuss the next step in turning her autobiography, From These Roots.
Apparently she's just too busy right now for it, though, saying, "It's in a limbo position."
For someone who just turned 70, she sure is loading up her schedule!
We hope she finds time for it soon — we want to see it!!
