Whitney Houston to return to movies?

Los Angeles: American singer-actress Whitney Houston is planning to return to the big screen with `Sparkle`, a remake of the 1976 musical loosely based on the story of the Supremes.

Houston, 48, who has not starred in a Hollywood movie since 1996`s `The Preacher`s Wife`, is in talks to join a cast that already includes American Idol winner Jordin Sparks and comedian Mike Epps, reported Rolling Stone magazine.

Houston is slated to play the role of a sceptical and unsupportive mother of the three main characters, who pursue success in R&B after discovering a love for singing in a Harlem church choir.

It`s unclear though whether or not Houston will sing in the movie.
