The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the Grammy Award-winning artist has landed a role in The Color Purple musical feature from Warner Bros. Studios. She will portray the character of Squeak, a waitress-turned-aspiring singer who was played by Rae Dawn Chong in the original 1985 film.

The forthcoming feature is a film adaptation of the Tony-nominated musical based Alice Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel of the same name. Blitz Bazawule has been tapped to direct the Warner Bros. project, with Marcus Gardley handling the screenplay.

The musical will be produced by Oprah Winfrey and Steven Spielberg; the former starred in 1985’s The Color Purple film, and the latter served as director. Alice Walker, Rebecca Walker, Kristie Macosko Krieger, Carla Gardini, and Mara Jacobs are also executive producing.
