Recording artiste H.E.R. is in final negotiations to make her feature film acting debut in The Color Purple movie musical.

Warner Bros. is behind the feature adaptation of the Tony-winning Broadway musical, itself an adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning 1982 novel by Alice Walker, on which the Oscar-nominated Steven Spielberg-directed 1985 movie was based. 

The story centers on a woman named Celie Harris and tracks her life-long struggles as an African American woman living in the South during the early 1900s.

H.E.R. will play Squeak, who, in the musical, goes from a juke joint waitress to an aspiring singer.
