Sony Pictures and Akil Productions recently released still photos from their upcoming remake of the classic 1976 film, “Sparkle.” The film stars Jordin Sparks, Tika Sumpter, Carmen Ejogo, and the late Whitney Houston.
According to the producer, Debra Martin Chase, the film will pay homage to the period (1968 Detroit), but still be very accessible today. Fashion Designer B Michael of B Michael America in collaboration with two-time Oscar-nominated costume designer Ruth Carter have provided the clothing.“We are honored and excited about the collaboration and look forward to working with the production team,” said B Michael.
