According to The Hollywood Reporter, Whitney Houston(The Bodyguard, Waiting to Exhale) is in talks to be in the remake of "Sparkle", the musical drama of an all-girl group that shoots to fame against all odds.

The 1976 film was based on the true story of The Supremes, and was directed by Sam O'Steen.

Jordin Sparks(Michele Bachmann's Migraines) and Mike Epps(The Hangover, Resident Evil: Apocalypse) have already signed up to star in the new "Sparkle", with Salim Akil(Jumping the Broom) directing from a script by Mara Brock Akil(Girlfriends, Cougar Town).

If Houston joins the cast, she will play the part of Effie, Sparkle's mother.
