Whitney Houston Biopic Movie to Star Rihanna or Jennifer Hudson?
By Daniel Gates | 1:59 pm, February 28th, 2012EXCLUSIVE
Houston’s mentor and close friend Clive Davis is said to be “at the helm” of the project and “wants to get a script finalized as soon as possible so filming can begin,” reports the Mail.
The newspaper says Rihanna and Hudson are “in the running for the lead role,” and also tosses in names like Vivica A. Fox and Jordin Sparks, and even Willow Smith (“thought to be portraying the actress as a child”).
But it is NOT TRUE.
NO movie is being readied, and neither Rihanna nor Hudson (nor anyone else) is on track to play Houston.
Davis’ rep exclusively tells Gossip Cop, “There is no truth to this. Clive is not putting together a biopic.”
