The word has been wondering when and if this was going to happen. Would it hit the big screen or TV’s across the nation? The question has finally been answered. Actress Angela Bassett is going to produce the Whitney Houston biopic which will be aired on Lifetime. The film will be based on the late singers life, career success, personal life, marriage with singer and bad boy Bobby Brown, challenges and her tragic death.
Angela says this is what she has been waiting for. “I have such regard for both Whitney’s and Bobby’s amazing talents and accomplishments, and I feel a responsibility in the telling of their story,” said Bassett. “Their humanity and bond fascinates us all.”
The film is tentatively called ‘Whitney Houston’, I think it should be titled ‘I Will Always Love You: The Whitney Houston Story’. The film will debut in 2015 and is already in pre-production. Bassett took to Twitter to state how excited she is.
Who do you think should play Whitney and Bobby Brown? I hope they lip sync her music…Houston’s voice is still one of a kind!
