And weeeeeee will always watch yooooouu…on Lifetime!
A movie about the late, great Whitney Houston is coming to Lifetime, and get this, Angela Bassett is directing! We'll be waiting to exhale for this to come out!
“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.”
Whoa, sounds dramatic! Is it possible to set our DVR for next year, seeing how the movie is coming out in 2015?!
Meanwhile, Angela seems ecstatic to be working on the project:
“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.”
We're glad Whitney's former co-star is taking the helm of telling her story!
Meanwhile, the working title of the film is Whitney Houston (surprise, surprise), and we cannot wait to be wowed in 2015!
