The movie starring Jennifer Hudson is sweeping people off their feet!
The star-studded Aretha Franklin biopic, 'Respect,' just dropped its first trailer and the response has been terrific. Jennifer Hudson portraying Aretha has taken to the character quite brilliantly and is winning hearts and minds all over the place. The movie itself is set to release on Oct 9, 2020.
The project had been long in development, with Jennifer Hudson set to play Aretha Franklin. Franklin herself was involved with the development up until her death on August 16, 2018. The rest of the cast was added in October 2019, including Forest Whitaker, Marlon Wayans, Audra McDonald, and Mary J. Blige. Filming began in Georgia in September 2019. And now you can take a look at the much-awaited trailer for yourself.
