The Aretha Franklin movie “Respect” is now filming in the Atlanta area and area extras casting directors have a casting call out for musicians who are able to work on set next month as well as various extras.
Aretha is known as the “Queen of Soul” and this upcoming film will follow her life from her humble beginnings all the way to her “Queen of Soul” superstar status. “Respect” will star Jennifer Hudson who is said to have been personally selected for the role by Aretha, herself, prior to her passing. Aretha Franklin won 17 Grammys including one for her hit song “Respect” in the late 60’s.
Callie Khouri, who wrote “Thelma & Louise” and also created the country music series Nashville, is writing the screenplay for “Respect.” The movie will be directed by Liesl Tommy and it looks like it is currently slated for a 2020 release date in theaters. The biopic is being produced by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, BRON Studios, Creative Wealth Media Finance and others.
