Who Should Play Whitney Houston in Rumored Biopic?

by at . Comments

Bobby Brown is not the only person reportedly looking to profit off Whitney Houston's death.

According to Great Britain's The Daily Mail, plans for a Whitney biopic - which existed when the singer was still alive - are being fast-tracked, and a number of big names are lining up for the main role.

  • Rihanna Cleave
  • Jennifer Hudson on Good Morning America

The leading contender? Rihanna, with Jordin Sparks, Jennifer Hudson and Vivica A. Fox also allegedly up for consideration.

"Whitney knew about the project and was excited to see where it would lead," an insider says, comparing the film to What's Love Got To Do With It, a Tina Turner biopic that landed two Oscar nominations for Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne.

Who do you think should portray Houston if this movie goes into production?

I think it should be Leona Lewis, even Whitney Houston said that Leona's a baby version of her. When Leona was performing at the Grammies Whitney said "She's a baby version of me."

I definitely believe that Halle Berry would play Whitney perfectly. I've seen some of Whitney's photos she has a resemblance to Halle Berry, but not only that I think Halle would do Whitney great all around from church Whitney to the Whitney that was on drugs, but one question I gotta ask who is going to play Bobby Brown, Bobbi Kristina and Cissy Houston? I hope that Halle gets that part cause she will play Whitney perfectly.
