    Lifetime doing Whitney Houston movie with Angela Bassett

    Inevitable, but also inevitably interesting: Lifetime is doing a
    Whitney Houston movie. Because of course they are. When Lifetime’s
    press release hit our inbox, the first question that sprang to mind was:
    They’re not already doing a Whitney Houston movie? Adding extra intrigue: Oscar nominee Angela Bassett will direct the film. Bassett and Houston co-starred in 1995′s Waiting to Exhale together. We’re told Bassett will not star, but she may have another role in the film.

    Here’s Lifetime’s plan for its take on the pop singer, who died two years ago at the age of 48: “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.”

    Added Bassett: “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.” Whitney Houston (working title) is scheduled to premiere in 2015.

    I hope Thandie Newton is considered to star.

    I don’t like this idea at all. Not that I disagree with the idea of a Whitney movie but this is way too soon in my opinion.

    It’s never too soon when it comes to these TV biopics, and there were talks of a film a mere few months after her passing.

    Even though it’s on Lifetime, hopefully this will be her breakout role. Go make Tyra Banks proud, or perhaps jealous.

    Good to see he’s got his My Prerogative/Ev’ry Little Step hair going for him. 

    And for the poster above, I looked her up and she’s done several projects including The Kids Are All Right.

    Also, I can’t remember where I saw it, but is the movie just focusing on the Bobby/Whitney time together, around the time of the reality show only? Or a broader range?
