A man shot a pal after an argument about whether Halle Berry should play Aretha Franklin in a movie about the late singer's life, police say.

Police said they could not verify the claims the men's argument revolved around Franklin.

The squabble broke out around 10:45 a.m. between two men in a barbershop in Suffolk, a witness told local station WTKR.

The argument quickly turned physical when they got outside after Hatton pulled out a gun and allegedly shot Lundy at least once.

Police said the gunshot victim is considered to be in serious condition.

Michael Jermell Hatton, 44, was arrested and charged with aggravated malicious wounding, as well as other charges in connection to shooting Tony Jonathan Lundy, 47, in Suffolk on Thursday, August 16, 2018. Hatton was also treated for injuries and then transported to a local jail, where he is now being held without bail. In the end, Berry didn't feel she could do Aretha justice.

"She was my first choice, everything's subject to negotiation, and she shouldn't underestimate her own talent", Franklin wrote in a telegram, according to the magazine. The legend had written a letter to The Wendy Williams Show commenting on the possible casting of Berry. "Many actors have portrayed vocalists by lip-synching to the artists' original recordings". Singer Jennifer Hudson was attached to the film in 2015, People reported. The Queen of Soul had been suffering from advanced pancreatic cancer.
