Oprah Winfrey: The Reincarnation of THE COLOR PURPLE

The controversial film that first made Oprah Winfrey a household name may get a newer life breathed into with a reincarnated version that may hit theaters in the very near future.

A proposed reinterpretation of the Steven Spielberg-helmed masterpiece ‘The Color Purple’ is reportedly being mulled by the media mogul, who made her breakout film debut as Miss Sofia in the original 1985 movie.

Imagine this: Tyler Perry directing it. Denzel Washington playing Mister, Fantasia taking on Celie again and Queen Latifah bringing her spunk to the Sofia role. And to add some sizzle to the mix; how about Mary J. Blige playing Shug? She has the voice for sure.
