Byline: ANI

Washington, Nov 27 (ANI): Aretha Franklin is thinking of giving Terrence Howard the role of Smokey Robinson in an upcoming biopic about the Queen of Soul.

And from what the reports suggest, the Motown legend has approved of her choice.

While Franklin has not yet finalised who will play her in the movie, she is quite sure that she's found her Smokey.

"I was talking to him (Howard) about playing Smokey (and) he said he would be delighted with a capital D," Contactmusic quoted the R.E.S.P.E.C.T. singer as saying.

She added: "And Smokey said that he would absolutely love for him to play him." (ANI)
