    Aretha Franklin is making her picks for who she wants to star in her biopic.

     
    If Aretha had it her way, Halle Berry would play her younger self in the film adaption of Aretha: From These Roots. But that’s not the only A-List pick she made for her casting wish list.


     
    The singer announced that she’d like Denzel Washington to play her father Rev. C.L. Franklin. And she thinks Terrance Howard would be perfect for the part of her dear friend and Motown icon Smokey Robinson, which we think is spot on! Aretha would also cast Blair Underwood and Nia Long as her brother and sister.


     
    While none of the actors have signed on to do the project, Aretha said that they’re excited about the film. Aretha: From These Roots is still in negotiations, and the diva will be reading a script for it next week.
