Rihanna To Play Whitney Houston In Biopic?

  • --
Clive Davis is working on a biopic about his beloved friend Whitney Houston, and Rihanna is reportedly the first choice for the role. There has always been speculation that Rihanna either looks like Whitney, or sounds like Whitney, and now she may be able to tribute the late singer by actually portraying her on film. But she is not the only consideration for the role. Vivica Fox, Jordin Sparks and Jennifer Hudson are all possibilities. But perhaps singer Brandy wants it the most. Before Whitney’s death, she said: “My dream role would be to play Whitney Houston, I have her personality down pat, her ‘isms’ down pat. Like no offense ladies — it’s a lot of talented ladies there — but nobody can play Whitney like me!” Now this movie is not just a method to profit off Whitney’s untimely death. The biopic has actually been in the works for a long time. Whitney knew about it and was excited to see where it would lead.
