Whitney Houston’s fans are in for a treat. In honor of the late singer, Angela Bassett is in talks to direct the biopic, which will be released in 2015.
However, Whitney’s family is not willing to jump on board with the rest of the fans. They feel like Whitney deserves more than a film about her on Lifetime.
Pat Houston, Whitney’s sister in-law and co-executor of her estate, said:
“Whitney is certainly worthy of more than a television movie. If Whitney were here today, this would not be happening.”
Reportedly, the Houstons are considering a lawsuit in order to stop the Lifetime movie from happening. Sources say the family also has their own movie in the works, to be made for the big screen.
Lifetime has not commented about the possible lawsuit and is still carrying on with their plans to promote the biopic.
I happen to be a huge Lifetime fan and personally, I’m excited to see what they do with her story.
Do you think the family should be upset over a television movie for Whitney? Will you be watching when it comes out?
