Sparkle Casting News

Jordin Sparks has been cast as the lead in Sparkle and comedian Mike Epps will play Satin in the updated version produced under the Akil Productions banner (they brought us Jumpin the Broom, Girlfriends, and The Game).

I am looking forward to the remake. Word is Whitney Houston is in the running to play Jordin's mom in the film. No word yet if Paula Patton has signed on officially but when that or any other casting of this much anticipated film occurs I will let you know!
