Zendaya Coleman Drops Out of Aaliyah Biopic

BET AWARDS '14 - Arrivals
Looks like all the controversy surrounding Zendaya Coleman being cast to play Aaliyah in the Lifetime biopic is now moot. The Disney star is reportedly pulling out of the film. A source from Zendaya’s camp told E! News, “Aaliyah has always been an inspiration to Zendaya. She was honored to portray her and pay tribute to her. If she is going to do it, she wants to do it right.” By right, they mean, they mean with all legal matters in order to start production. The source told the site that Lifetimehas yet to obtain the rights to Aaliyah’s music. Lifetime has yet to make a statement on the matter.
Now that Zendaya’s dropped out of the project, what do you think is to come of the Aaliyah biopic?
