Detroit’s “Queen of Soul”, Aretha Franklin, offered updates on her next album and her long-planned bio-pic. The Queen of Soul tells “Entertainment Tonight of Canada” that Babyface and Danger Mouse are producing her album “and we are just about ready to go in the studio.” She didn’t offer any song titles or guest stars.

As for the movie, she’s now given up on getting Halle Berry to play her on screen. Instead, she says, “We’re down to about three people. One of them is Audra McDonald, who just won her eighth and ninth Tony[s] on Broadway, and the other is Jennifer Hudson. Then, there is a surprise, [which] I’m not going to mention.”
