Whitney Houston will "Sparkle" in musical remake.

Whitney Houston will be featured in a remake of the 1976 film "SPARKLE", a music-themed film inspired by the story of the Supremes.

The film's soundtrack will feature two songs by the pop diva, (who died on Saturday, February 11th) a cover of a gospel song and a duet with former American Idol winner JORDAN SPARKS (pictured) who also plays her daughter in the film.

The original film centers on a girl group who rose to fame from a church choir in harlem and suffer internal conflicts after a sudden rise to fame complicates matters for the group and it's gifted lead singer named Sparkle.

Directed by Salim Akil (The Game), this rags-to-riches contemporary musical classic also features Mike Epps (Next Friday, The Hangover) and Cee-Lo Green. It is set for an August 2012 release.

It's not hard to see that millions of Whitney's adoring fans, Americal Idol watchers and fans of the original film will come out in record numbers to see the new "Sparkle".

Expect this to be one of the most HIGHEST-GROSSING FILMS OF ALL TIME, a boost for the film industry and a welcome catalyst for the resurgence of musical films in general.
