Beyonce is in talks to star in ''Dreamgirls'' (Entertainment Weekly)



Child's Play

Beyonce is in talks to star in ''Dreamgirls.'' She's an obvious fit for a musical inspired by Diana Ross and the Supremes, being adapted to the screen by ''Chicago'''s Bill Condon by Gary Susman

It was probably destiny that Beyoncé would take a starring role in a movie version of Dreamgirls. Variety confirms what's been rumored for months: that the Destiny's Child frontwoman is in talks to star in Dreamworks' film adaptation of the hit Broadway musical loosely based on the story of the Supremes. It's not clear whether Beyoncé would play the lead role of Deena, the Diana Ross-inspired character, or the flashier role of Effie, who gets to sing the showstopping ''And I Am Telling You I Am Not Going'' number that made a star of Jennifer Holliday. Kinsey writer-director Bill Condon, who was nominated for an Oscar for his screenplay for Chicago, is writing and directing Dreamgirls, which he hopes to shoot this fall in Los Angeles.

It's not clear? Beyonce IS Deena. Effie should be played Kelly Price.

Beyonce doesn't have the right voice type to pull off and I am telling you .. I think She has great range, but I think her voice over all is a bit too thin to do the song justice.
