Whitney Houston Biopic In The Works! Rihanna, Brandy, J-Hud, Jordin Sparks, Vivica Fox Being Considered

A Whitney Houston biopic is in the works — a project being led by Clive Davis — and the first task at hand is to find a leading lady.

A shortlist has already reportedly been drawn up. At the top? Rihanna and Jennifer Hudson (who performed “I Will Always Love You” at the Grammys, the day after Whitney’s death).

Also in the running? Vivica Fox, and Whitney’s Sparkle co-star Jordin Sparks. As is Brandy, whose brother Ray J., dated Whitney. Brandy also has a special connection to Whitney, as the late singer checked in on Brandy and Monica during their rehearsals in the days leading up to her death.

Clive is seeking to finalize a script for the biopic so shooting can begin as soon as possible.
