Whitney Houston Biopic Set For Lifetime

Over two years after her untimely death, Whitney Houston's remarkable career and headline-filled marriage to Bobby Brown is headed for the small screen with a Lifetime biopic in the works.

The more surprising news is that the project has been placed in the hands of her 'Waiting to Exhale' co-star Angela Bassett, who has no previous directing experience. Maybe it is just me, but I think Nippy's story and career are more deserving of the big screen and a acclaimed director. This upsets me.

Slated to be released in 2015, 'Whitney Houston' (working title), according to the release, will "chronicle 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."

"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," Bassett said of her upcoming directorial debut. "Their humanity and bond fascinates us all. I'm beyond excited to have this opportunity to go behind the camera and into their world." Sigh!!!
