Whitney Houston was counting on “Sparkle” to be the vehicle for her acting comeback. Her last film has been “The Preacher’s Wife,” released in 1996. Houston died last February during post-production of “Sparkle.” Starring along with Sparks and Houston are Carmen Ejogo and Tika Sumpter. Originally the film was set to star Aaliyah, but the singer died in a plane crash in August 2001.
“Sparkle,” is set in the 1960s, three sisters form girl group and soon become Motown sensations, but fame becomes a challenge as the close-knit family begins to fall apart.
“Sparkle” opens in the U.S. on this Friday, August 17 and will battle for box office dollars with other films opening this weekend including the action film “The Expendables 2,” the animated film “ParaNorman” and the family film “The Odd Life of Timothy Green.”
