Not Just Yet: Aretha Franklin Biopic Put On Hold For New Record Deal


Aretha Franklin is not ready to retire just yet. After recently celebrating her 70th birthday — the soul singer’s upcoming biopic has been put on hold – as she is said to be concentrating on her upcoming music deal. 

The Queen of Soul told the press that some things are “going on” and the movie is “in a limbo position.”

This is all due to Franklin’s grandson who is said to be in the middle of negotiating a recording contract for the singer to release music with Clive Davis.

And although the biopic it’s currently on hold, you can almost guarantee that Franklin will still be very much involved in the potential casting, as she has already told producers whom she wants and doesn’t want to play her part.

Of course, MSDTV will keep you posted as the story develops. Stay Tuned.
