Film All About Florence Ballard On Its Way?

Recommended Posts

The biopic of the legendary Florence Ballard, the ex Supreme who died penniless and on welfare, is in the works.

R&B singer Faith Evans revealed today that she landed the role of Ballard.

I always give the side-eye when singers who have little experience acting play biopics. Ballard is a meaty, complex character and the main inspiration behind Effie White in Dreamgirls. N

onetheless, Evans might surprise us " she certainly has the soul in her vocals.

Like the guy says in the article, Faith Evans does bear "a striking resemblance" to Flo Ballard so she appears to be the obvious choice, however, his worries about singers acting might be a bit premature. Madonna has proved to be pretty awful certainly but I thought Beyonce acted reasonably well in Cadillac Records (the bio-pic of Chess) and Queen Latifah has had a couple of decent parts.

Let's wait and see.
