Led by "American Idol" winner Jordin Sparks with an the ensemble cast that includes Michael K. Williams, Carmen Ejogo, Tika Sumpter, Derek Luke, Mike Epps, Omari Hardwick and the late Whitney Houston in a music heavy remake of the 1976 film of the same name, you can bet the filmmakers behind this are hoping the same audience that turned "Think Like A Man" into a sleeper hit show up for this next month. And it certainly won't hurt having a start studded soundtrack.
