Castle star Tamala Jones will be behind a Tammi Terrell biopic based on the Motown singer’s tragically short life. According to Deadline.com, Jones will not star in the biopic but will produce based on the book My Sister Tommie written by Terrell’s sister, Ludie Montgomery. Although there is another production in the works produced by and starring Vampire Diaries actress Kat Graham, Montgomery and the Terrell estate are backing Jones’ version.

Tammi Terrell was the Motown singer who sang on classic duets with labelmate Marvin Gaye including “You’re All I Need To Get By” and “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough,” as well as on her own solo albums. Sadly, the Philadelphia native succumbed to a brain tumor at age 24.

The as-yet unnamed project will start production in 2016. Although a screenwriter, Sylvia Jahshan has been announced, there is no word on casting. The Graham project is also slated to start filming next year.
