Angela Bassett to direct Whitney Houston Biopic

Oh my, what big shoes to fill!

2 years after her untimely death, Whitney Houston will finally have her story told! It will be directed by Yale University grad-actress Angela Bassett! Who on earth will they get to play Whitney? And Bobby? Like you just can't replicate that voice...

But Angela did great as Tina Turner so if we can trust anyone with this extensive body of work it will be the 55 year old actress. She morphed into Tina for "What's Love Got to Do With It", wasn't she just incredible? Still my fave movie of all time! #EatTheCakeAnnaMae

Here's what Angela said about her directorial debut. 

“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,” said Bassett in a statement. “Their humanity and bond fascinates us all. I’m beyond excited to have this opportunity to go behind the camera and into their world.”

I will be tuning in. This movie is slated to premiere in 2015.
