The 1996 American comedy-drama film, The Preacher’s Wife, directed by Penny Marshall and starring Denzel Washington, Whitney Houston, and Courtney B. Vance is being “reimagined” by Emmy award-winning director Anthony Hemingway.

The original The Preacher’s Wife was a remake of the 1947 film The Bishop’s Wife, which in turn was based on the novel of the same name by Robert Nathan.

The film was nominated for two Oscars and five Image Awards and won two: for Best Actress, Whitney Houston, and Best Supporting Actress, Loretta Devine, as reported by IMDb.

According to The Jasmine Brand, Hemingway has plans to produce with Vance, an original cast member who will be featured, and Angela Bassett. this new version will boost “the musicality” of the storytelling and “creatively evolve the story in a new direction,” according to BVP’s producing partner Dwayne Johnson-Cochran.
