Sparkle Trailer: Because That Word Hasn’t Already Been Tainted Enough By Vampires
By Jay Stevens, Jr. | Trade News | August 10, 2012 |
At first glance, one might think this smacks of more than just a passing resemblance to 2006's Dreamgirls, with only a different cast including another American Idol refugee and accompanying pop star. Strangely enough however, this movie is in fact a remake of a 1976 movie of the same title (oddball character names and all) that was co-written by Howard Rosenman and Joel Schumacher. Houston acquired the remake rights back in 2000 and was also one of the film's executive producers.
Sparkle finally comes to theaters on August 19th after a few delays.
