Solange and Jurnee to star in Florence Ballard biopic?
Solange and Jurnee Smollett are rumored to be stars of a new biopic on the life of Supremes co-founder, Florence Ballard.
If true, Jurnee would play Ballard — a legendary singer who died tragically at 32 — and Solange would have the juicy role of Diana Ross.
According to its IMDB profile, “Blondie: The Florence Ballard Story” is currently in production with Michele Ballard-Chapman, Florence’s daughter, co-producing the film.
Earlier reports claimed that Faith Evans would play Florence and Taraji P. Henson was in the running to star as Diana, but it looks like both are out.
No word yet on who else will star in the film, or its release date.
