In one of her final interviews, Whitney sat down to dish on the upcoming 1976 remake of the same name.
"God has his own time," Whitney explained to The Insider about the project's lengthy hiatus.
"[Jordin's] just really, just perfect," Whitney raved about her co-star. "She's truly, truly embraced the role and doing such a marvelous job and just putting herself into it and just her voice is gorgeous."
Soon after Whitney's death, a spokesperson for Sony said in a statement to CNN that the film will be released in August 2012. The rep added, “Like all those who knew and loved her, we are shocked and saddened and the world has lost an incomparable talent. Right now our thoughts are with her daughter, her family and her friends.”
The film also stars as House actor Omar Epps. Houston will appear in the film as Spark's mother.
