The life story of music legend Whitney Houston is getting the biopic treatment, with a film produced by her estate and longtime mentor Clive Davis.

A Whitney Houston biopic is happening. Here's how Clive Davis is involved

The upcoming project is tentatively called “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” according to a release from the film’s producers. “The Photograph” director Stella Meghie is in advanced talks to direct the screenplay to be penned by Anthony McCarten, the “Bohemian Rhapsody” screenwriter.

The million-dollar question remains, which star will take the lead part of Houston? The global superstar has sold more than 200 million records worldwide but tragically died in a Beverly Hills hotel bathtub at 48 in 2012 —  the victim of an accidental drowning brought on by heart disease and longtime cocaine abuse.

Whitney Houston is getting the biopic treatment with "I Wanna Dance With Somebody."

In a statement, Davis vows the film will feature “a no holds barred, musically rich” screenplay. The producers’ release described it as a “joyous, emotional and heart-breaking celebration of the life and music of the greatest female R&B pop vocalist of all time.”

“I know the full Whitney Houston story has not yet been told,” Davis adds.

Pat Houston, Whitney Houston’s sister-in-law, will produce, representing the family estate. She says the film will be “uplifting and inspiring to all that loved her.”

No release date or production schedule was stated in the release.

In 2018 a Houston documentary directed by filmmaker Kevin Macdonald, “Whitney,” was released in theaters featuring never-before-seen home videos and photos provided by the Houston estate.
