Whitney Houston Biopic Coming To Lifetime

Angela Bassett will direct the film about the singer's life and relationship with Bobby Brown.

A little more than two years since Whitney Houston's death, a biopic on the singer's life is in the works and set to appear on Lifetime, according to Deadline.

The movie, tentatively titled "Whitney Houston," will reportedly focus on the relationship between the late icon and her husband, singer Bobby Brown, while also spotlighting her status as a force in the worlds of singing and acting.

"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," Angela Bassett, who will be making her directorial debut on the project, said in a statement. "Their humanity and bond fascinates us all. I'm beyond excited to have this opportunity to go behind the camera and into their world."

There were also reports back in 2012 that Clive Davis was working on a Houston biopic, though nothing has yet emerged.
