‘Sparkle’ to be released as novel and Broadway show

The Hollywood Reporter reports that the upcoming musical film Sparkle will also be released as a novel in August and may be eyeing a spot on Broadway as well. Five new songs will be added to the production tp make it a musical fit for the stage.

Sony’s remake of the 1976 musical film Sparkle has definitely generated heightened interest following the death of star Whitney Houston, who plays mom to a group of young girl singers (one played by Jordin Sparks) trying to make it big.
