There is a Whitney Houston biopic in the works. Her estate along with producer Clive Davis and Primary Wave Music will be partners for the movie. The film will be entitled, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody.” The featured film will come from the screenwriter of “Bohemian Rhapsody.”
“From all my personal and professional experience with Whitney from her late teenage years to her tragic premature death, I know the full Whitney Houston story has not yet been told,” Davis said in a statement. He said McCarten’s script will finally reveal the “whole Whitney whose vocal genius deeply affected the world while she fiercely battled the demons that were to be her undoing.”
Houston sold over 200 million records worldwide during her 25-year career and won six Grammys, 16 Billboard Music Awards and two Emmys before her death in 2012.
