*It was previously reported that Paula Patton scored a role in the remake of the classic film “Sparkle.” But now there is a bit of doubt on the matter since there has been a casting call made for a certain type of actress that fits her profile.
The call reads something like the producers are looking for a, “… light-skinned African-American with naturally wavy hair, beautiful, sexy and sassy, with a body like a brick house and a powerful, seductive stage presence; It’d be great if the actress can sing, but it’s not a requirement.”
Many assumed Patton would be playing the role of Sister, originally played by Lonette McKee.
But it doesn’t necessarily mean Patton is out. It just means there is a bit of a snare in the public’s speculation.
