Get into it below:

JHud will play Aretha Franklin in the upcoming biopic about the legendary singer’s life titled, RESPECT. As you know, the Queen of Soul handpicked the Dreamgirls actress to play her before her death in 2018. Marlon Wayans, Forest Whitaker, Mary J. Blige and Queen Latifah will also star in the film.
RESPECT is set for a Christmas release, but that could change due to the Coronavirus pandemic. We’ll keep you posted. In the meantime, check out the trailer below:
