Sparkle, the movie that could have been Whitney Houston's acting comeback, is going to be released earlier than the original August release date, because of the tragic death of the singer, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting. Houston passed away on Saturday, after she was found unconscious and unresponsive at in her hotel room at the Beverly Hilton.
The award winning singer was declared dead by paramedics at the iconic hotel at 3:55 pm PST. She was 48. "Dates are being discussed, and it's still early, but the reasoning is that Whitney's fans will want to see her in this movie, in which she gives a remarkable performance," a studio insider tells RadarOnline.com.
"This absolutely isn't being done to make money. The IMDB website for the Sparkle movie has received record traffic in the hours since Whitney died. "The movie is in post-production right now, and it could be released as soon as Memorial Day.
The studio bosses want the public to remember Whitney as a brilliant performer and stunning actress. The execs are going to be sensitive to her death and will communicate with her family at an appropriate time."
Whitney plays the mother of Jordin Spark's character, who is trying to break into show business as a singer of part of a trio. The movie is a remake the 1976 version, which is loosely based on the story of The Supremes. SOURCE
Who didn't see this coming? As harsh as it may sound, I do believe that they are switching the dates to generate more money, but at the same time, it's for the good of the fans. We want it. We want to see the movie right now at this very moment. Yes, they are making the right moves and have the right intentions, but we all know that this movie will bring home the cash. It will be number one for weeks an possibly sold out every where. I can see tickets being sold on E-Bay. Everyone from around the world will want to see their idol, for the very last time doing what she did best, entertaining.
