In the past few years, the musical icon biopic—a distinct sub-genre of films, has come into vogue. Bohemian Rhapsody, about Queen’s Freddy Mercury, and Rocketman, about Elton John, are two notable examples. Now, a much-anticipated Whitney Houston movie is coming soon.
I wanna dance with somebody: Plot and Cast!
Houston’s estate is producing “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” in collaboration. This allows the filmmakers to reproduce all of Houston’s hit songs. An all-star team is behind the picture. This includes producers Clive Davis, a music industry legend, and Pat Houston, Whitney’s sister-in-law and former manager.
Naomi Ackie will play Whitney Houston. The BAFTA winner is best known for her roles in Netflix’s The End of the F***ing World and Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.
Oscar nominee Anthony McCarten, who wrote the screenplay for 2018’s Freddie Mercury biopic, Bohemian Rhapsody, is attached to pen the script.
Ashton Sanders as Bobby Brown, Stanley Tucci as Clive Davis, Nafesa Williams as Robyn Crawford will show. Also, Clarke Peters as John Houston (Whitney’s father), Tamara Tunie as Cissy Houston (Whitney’s mother) are part of the cast members.
It’s tough to overstate how important Whitney Houston was to a generation of music lovers in the ’80s and ’90s. She exploded onto the scene in 1985 and became one of the best-selling artists of all time. This is all thanks to her astounding vocal range, wide-spanning appeal, and her ability to pull listeners in due to the emotions in her performances.
If you listened to the radio during that era, her music was truly inescapable – but no matter how much airplay her songs got, the power of her music was undeniable.
