Recently, MGM has confirmed the release date of the Aretha Franklin Biography (Respect): August 14, 2020. Putting a biographer in the summer file is not a wise choice. But Aretha Franklin died on August 14, 2018, so this release time is a commemoration.
It is understood that the film will be directed by Liesl Tommy, who wrote the script for Callie Khouri, who won the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay Award for Thelma & Louise. The one who will play Aretha Franklin in the film is Jennifer Hudson, who won the 79th Oscar for Best Supporting Actress Award for Dreamgirls. It can be said that such an all-female team is a big guarantee for the success of the film. Aretha Franklin is hailed as one of the greatest female singers of all time. Born in Memphis, the popular music city of Memphis in 1942, she was a pop singer and published songs spanning soul and pop music. She was the title of Lady Soul/The Queen Of Soul.
