With the August 17th release date coming up, Screen Gems has released 3 clips from Sparkle, including an in-house interview with the late Whitney Houston.

Directed by Salim Akil from a script by Mara Brock Akil, the film is a remake of the 1976 classic that starred Irene Cara, Lonette Mckee, and Philip Michael Thomas.

In this version, the cast includes Jordin Sparks, Whitney Houston, Derek Luke, Mike Epps, Carmen Ejogo, Tika Sumpter, Omari Hardwick, Cee-Lo Green, Tamela Mann, Michael Beach, and Terrence J.

“Sparkle” tells the story of the title character; Sparkle, (Jordin Sparks) the youngest of three sisters and a music prodigy who struggles to becomes a star while overcoming issues that are tearing her family apart. Sparkle is from an affluent Detroit area, naive to the unexpected experiences her new life will bring as she and her two sisters blossom into a dynamic singing group during the Motown-era.

Whitney Houston will play the trio’s mother (Emma). Mike Epps plays a wealthy comedian named Satin, who woos Sparkle’s sister into a drug-filled abusive relationship on their way to the top. During her journey, Sparkle endures the trials and tribulations of fame but fights to rise through the ranks of the music business. “Sparkle” is set in the late 1960s when Detroit was the music mecca of America.
