is in talks to play the late great Eartha Kitt
in a new film. After portraying Etta James
in Cadillac Records
and emulating Diana Ross
, the singer/actress is hoping to complete a trilogy of diva roles by taking on original Catwoman
Kitt on the big screen.
She says, "I was going to do a film about Eartha Kitt. It's a great story, but I don't know if it's still happening. If it does, it'll just fall into place."
Kitt died on Christmas Day after losing
her battle with colon cancer at age 81.
