Halle Berry Still Being Considered for Aretha Franklin Biopic

Halle Berry drops her car off with the valet while out and about on Friday (July 8) in Brentwood, Calif.

The 44-year-old actress is still in considerations to play Aretha Franklin in an upcoming biopic about the singer, according to Aretha herself.

“Ms. [Jennifer] Hudson and Fantasia are two of the people being considered but Halle Berry is back in the game!” Aretha told Macleans.

“I just saw her at the curtain of Oprah’s farewell event and she let me know that she still wants to play the role and she didn’t know that she wasn’t expected to sing. I told her, ‘No, we never expected you to sing, we already knew you weren’t a singer!’ However, I do think she could pull it off,” Aretha added.

DO YOU THINK Halle Berry would make a good Aretha Franklin?
