    A biographical film about Whitney Houston that is being written and produced by Anthony McCarten appears to be moving forward pretty fast. Stella Meghie, who just did The Photograph, is set to direct.

    With McCarten writing the script, then whoever will end up playing Whitney is sure to get some Oscar buzz. Speaking of which, who would you like to see star?

    Gugu Mbatha-Raw!

    This would be the perfect role for her to finally get recognized and receive some awards attention. Very happy that Whitney’s family is backing this. Hope it pays a beautiful tribute to her legacy.

    Hopefully “I Will Always Love You” will be a big moment in the film, as that’s my personal favorite Whitney Houston song. Let’s hope it’s not cut down to a small snippet like “Candle In The Wind” was for Rocketman.

    the only whitney houston biopic i want is one that tells the truth about her romantic relationship with her best friend robyn crawford. but knowing this is being made with the approval of whitney’s homophobic family, that will never happen. i’m not interested in half the story.

    no, please. I love Gugu but she can’t be fit for this. She’s too light skinned and I don’t think she can sing.

    Janelle Monae will be a wonderful choice. I’ve been saying it for years. She needs to do this. If not Monae, then it should go to a newcomer

    When I started thinking about who should play Whitney Houston, the first person that came to mind was Ariana DeBose. She’s a Tony nominated actress for her performance in The Donna Summer Musical, was in the original cast of Hamilton, and is playing Anita in Steven Spielberg’s West Side Story reboot.

    Hell no to Erivo.

    It should go to Nicole Beharie.

    I don’t think having an actress who can’t sing is a problem. Angela Bassett didn’t sing when she played Tina Turner but everyone loves that performance. The way I see it, I’d rather see someone who doesn’t sing but can act the Hell out of the role rather than sacrifice acting skills to get a better voice.

    I also agree, I’d like to see either Janelle Monae or an unknown. Please not Erivo. She’s got an incredible voice, but she’s yet to impress me when she’s on camera (and she constantly comes across as a self absorbed ass).

    Depending on how well Jennifer Hudson does in the Aretha biopic I feel like she could land this role too.
