The Lifetime network announced today that they will be making a movie about the life of Whitney Houston, who died two years ago. Houston’s Waiting to Exhale co-star Angela Bassett has been tabbed to direct, although she will not be starring in the movie.
In a statement, they describe the plot:
“Whitney Houston chronicles the headline-making relationship between the iconic singer, actress, producer and model, and singer, songwriter Bobby Brown -- from the time they first met at the very height of their celebrity, to their courtship and tumultuous marriage. Throughout it all, difficulties followed the superstar couple while they dealt with the overwhelming rewards and consequences of the fame and fortune created by Whitney’s meteoric rise that would soon overshadow them both.”
In the release, Bassett also offered her perspective:
“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.
Their humanity and bond fascinates us all. I’m beyond excited to have this opportunity to go behind the camera and into their world.”
It should certainly make for an interesting movie, at the very least. It will premiere sometime in 2015.
