Queen Latifah, Keke Palmer and Dolly Parton are starring in a new film called ,”Joyful Noise” scheduled to be released on Jan. 13, 2012. It looks interesting, to say the least.
Latifah and Parton are in charge of their church choir and constantly bicker about the direction the sound of the choir should go. Parton wants it more upbeat and Latifah wants to keep it traditional. Palmer plays Latifah’s daughter who is also a member of the choir, but secretly has dreams of getting a record deal.
The choir is failing, but before it totally flops Parton’s grandson comes to save the day with his amazing voice and creative ideas.
It seems as though this story has definitely been done before (Sister Act, Fighting Temptations), but maybe the cast will surprise us.
Latifah has been in numerous movies including “Set It Off” and “Just Wright.” Palmer is known for her role as Akeelah in “Akeelah and the Bee” and her show on the Disney network, “True Jackson, VP.” The teen star has also been trying to make a name for herself as a singer so we might get a taste of what she has to offer in this film.
The trailer is below. Will you go and see it?
