It’s official, Keke Palmer is now linked to an upcoming role in the new film Joyful Noise.
The Hollywood Reporter says that the film will follow two women who join forces to prevent a small-town gospel choir from shutting down. Keke will portray a character along with Queen Latifah and Dolly Parton.
Queen Latifah will play the mother of two teens who is put in charge of the Pacashau Gospel Choir after the death of its choir director, while Dolly will appear as the choir director’s widow who hopes to take over her late husband’s job.
Production is due January 2011 in Atlanta.
