Jennifer Hudson Plays The Queen of Soul in 'Respect'

Oscar, Golden Globe and SAG award winner and former America Idol contestant Jennifer Hudson may have taken her biggest role since Dreamgirls. Respect is an upcoming  biopic based on  the life of the late (and painfully missed)  Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin, the title derived from her hit song of the same name. Knowing how great her voice is, it's no doubt Hudson will do the role justice, more so as Aretha Franklin herself  approved Hudson being cast to play her if  her biopic ever came up, before her death. 
'Respect' is currently in post production but will be released in limited cinemas on Christmas day, before getting a wider release in January 2021. 
Comedian Marlon Wayans plays Aretha's manager and first husband, Ted White, Mary J. Blige as  singer and pianist Dina Washington and Tate Donovan as  record producer and civil rights activist, John Hammond. 

Who else predicts an Oscar for Hudson???
