A new movie about the late Whitney Houston’s relationship with ex-husband Bobby Brown will be coming to Lifetime in 2015 and Angela Bassett is slated to direct it. According to Variety this movie will follow the history of Whitney & Bobby  from the time they first met at the very height of their celebrity, to their courtship and tumultuous marriage.

Whitney’s close friend Angela Bassett said “Their humanity and bond fascinates us all. I’m beyond excited to have this opportunity to go behind the camera and into their world.” This should be a interesting movie and I wonder if some of the celebrities in their life at the time like New Edition, Phadera Parks and even their daughter Bobbi Kristina will be highlighted in the movie.

I would have really loved to see the Whitney Houston story from the beginning of her career, but I know for sure this part of her life will definitely be interesting to watch too…there was alot of drama during this time. I think Angela Bassett will do a good job because she had a personal relationship with her. She said “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.”

Who should play the part of Whitney Houston & Bobby Brown?

More to come…
