Solange Knowles To Play Diana Ross In Upcoming "Blondie" Biopic!
Many of you DON’T know this but I am HUGE fan of the Supremes and when I heard that they were FINALLY making a biopic of the life of Florence Ballard (Blondie was her nickname), I nearly fell out my own skin..Get into the details after the jump!
Although her big sis Beyonce has been compared to Diana Ross throughout her career Solange Knowles will play Diana Ross in Blondie: The Florence Ballard Story. Blondie documents when The Supremes were the most successful female vocal group in history and the life of Florence Ballard which was supposed to be played by R&B singer Faith Evans (now played by Jurnee Smollett), the orginal lead singer of the group.
The Supremes have been done time and time again in movies based around that era. Back in 2006 Beyonce played Deena in Dreamgirls the movie loosely based off of the group.
the third Supreme hasn’t been announced!
Who do you think should play Mary Wilson & Cindy Birdsong?
I think Naturi Naughton should play Mary and Raven Symone could play Cindy Birdsong!
