In the latter months of 2011, Whitney Houston was in Detroit filming scenes from what will now be her last movie, 'Sparkle.' The movie is set in Detroit during the Motown era, and also features American Idol winner Jordin Sparks. Houston and Sparks spoke with 'Entertainment Tonight' about the project.

Houston, who passed away suddenly yesterday, plays Sparks' mother in the remake of the Curtis Mayfield film. It's scheduled to be released in August, and Sony says there are no plans to alter its release date.
