Just after celebrating her 70th birthday over the weekend, fans of Aretha Franklin got the sad new that her upcoming biopic has been put on hold.

The Queen of Soul told the press that some things are “going on” and the movie is “in a limbo position.”

Franklin’s grandson is actually in the middle of negotiating a recording contract right now and she’s working on releasing her music with Clive Davis.

Even though it’s on hold, the diva is still looking forward to the day.

When the idea first surfaced, she was heavily involved in the potential casting, telling the producers whom she wants and doesn’t want to play her part.

But in the meantime, we will wait, hoping for a release date soon.
