This film, Aaliyah: Princess of R&B, will be based on the biography, Aaliyah: More Than a Woman.
The singer was 22 when she was killed in a plane crash in 2001.
Zendaya, a singer-actress, is best known for the Disney show “Shake It Up” and “Dancing with the Stars.”
She actually dressed as Aaliyah for a Halloween party last October — see photo below.
The film will shoot this summer and is slated to premiere in the fall.
