And let’s go for another biopic of a famous singer…. in this case a singer and none other than Whitney Houston!
Anthony McCarten develops the script for the feature about the singer and Stella Meghie negotiates participation as a director.
McCarten produced the films Two Popes, The Darkest Hour, and Bohemian Rhapsody. Meghie was responsible for the drama The Photography, which was not released in Brazilian cinemas.
Second The Wrap, the feature has the provisional title of I Wanna Dance With Somebody.
The film may use the songs of the singer, known for hits like I Will Always Love You of the movie The bodyguard released in the 90’s and still, the songs Greatest Love Of All, I Look To You and I Wanna Dance With Somebody.
Houston was born in the 60s, and has been singing in the choir since she was a child. As a teenager she worked as a model, and at 19 she signed her first contract with a record label. He won 2 Grammy Awards and sold millions of records throughout his career.
His personal life has always been very troubled and turbulence involving domestic abuse and drug use. He passed away in 2012.
A distributor has not been announced for the film, which is in the early stages of development.
The Whitney Houston feature has no premiere date or cast names.
