It will be her directorial debut and a daunting one at that — Angela Bassett is set to tell Whitney Houston’s story in a new Lifetime Original Movie.
Whitney Houston (working title) will not only focus on the singers life, but it will focus on her infamous relationship with R&B singer, Bobby Brown.
According to Lifetime, “Whitney Houston chronicles the headline-making relationship between the iconic singer, actress, producer and model, and singer, songwriter Bobby Brown — from the time they first met at the very height of their celebrity, to their courtship and tumultuous marriage. Throughout it all, difficulties followed the superstar couple while they dealt with the overwhelming rewards and consequences of the fame and fortune created by Whitney’s meteoric rise that would soon overshadow them both.”
“I have such regard for both Whitney’s and Bobby’s amazing talents and accomplishments; and I feel a responsibility in the telling of their story,” Bassett said in a press release obtained by HipHollywood. “Their humanity and bond fascinates us all. I’m beyond excited to have this opportunity to go behind the camera and into their world.”
Whitney Houston is scheduled for a 2015 world premiere.
