Whitney Houston and Jordin Sparks Talk 'Sparkle' Remake
The two songbirds open up about the highly anticipated remake
Fans and music lovers cannot wait to see the remake of "Sparkle," a film about the challenges a singing group faces once they hit it big.
Due out in theaters on August 10, star Jordin Sparks is already gushing about fellow co-star and R&B powerhouse Whitney Houston.
"She was so cool and very motherly toward me," Sparks told People.com. "If I ever looked like I needed something, here she came saying 'Are you okay?'"
Meanwhile, Houston is excited to go back in time. The original film was released in 1976 and starred Lonette McKee and Irene Cara.
"Part of the fun of making this movie is definitely the costumes and the hairstyles," Houston dished. "The movie is set in 1963, and we had a great wardrobe, hair and makeup person and I loved wearing the outfits."
The film also stars Derek Luke.
