I, Tina became a worldwide best-seller and morphed into classic 1993 biopic What’s Love Got to Do With It, where actress Angela Bassett portrayed Turner and actor Laurence Fishburne was cast as Turner’s abusive ex-husband, Ike. According to EW, the book’s timing is not coincidental, as it’s meant to commemorate Turner’s 60th year actively working in music.
