Houston Family Unhappy With Plans for Whitney Biopic
The Lifetime Network is planning to put a Whitney Houston biopic in the works, but the Houston estate is not happy about it. TMZ reports that the Houston’s family believes that the late singer/actress was too big of a star to have her life portrayed on the small screen and plan to take legal action to block production from beginning.
Pat Houston told TMZ , “Whitney is certainly worthy of more than a television movie. If Whitney were here today, this would not be happening.” The flick was set to hit TV screens in 2015 and serve as Whitney’s Waiting to Exhale co-star Angela Bassett’s directorial debut. Lifetime has yet to comment.
