A Clark Sisters biopic is in the works!

The group confirmed the news on their official Instagram page, saying that the film is titled You Brought The Sunshine: The Story of the Clark Sisters. 

Missy Elliott, Queen Latifah and Mary J. Blige are attached as producers.





It is reported that the project is set at Lifetime, where Queen Latifah has a production deal.

The legendary gospel group, consisting of sisters Karen Clark Sheard, Dorinda Clark-Cole, Jacky Clark-Chisholm, and Elbernita “Twinkie” Clark-Terrell, are considered to be gospel music pioneers and one of the first gospel acts to transition to mainstream, with an impact not only on gospel music but Black music in general. Their popular songs include "Is My Living In Vain" and the Gold-certified hit, "You Brought The Sunshine."

No word on any casting news or when production would commence.
