Aretha Franklin’s ‘Respect’ movie locks in wide January release

Aretha Franklin’s biopic has a new date. “Respect,” starring Jennifer Hudson as the Queen of Soul, will get a full-scale release on Jan. 15 — Martin Luther King’s birthday — a film rep confirmed to the Detroit Free Press.

Re: Aretha Franklin’s ‘Respect’ movie locks in wide January release

I wonder whatever happened to the National Geographic Channel's planned "Genius" series on Franklin, which was supposed to air May 25th. As far as I know, it never did and with so much production on hold, they're probably holding it for use in the fall or maybe even next year.

I wasn't aware there were two such projects underway, but I'm definitely looking forward to the Nat Geo one - whenever it finally airs.
