This is some exciting news: We will get to go deeper into the life of one of Hollywood’s most talented and most controversial stars.

A new biopic is in the works for one of our favorite singers of all time, Whitney Houston and Angela Bassett will be directing it. Just two years after her untimely death days before the 2012 Grammys, iconic singer Whitney Houston’s life will be chronicled in a new Lifetime original movie with the working title, Whitney Houston.

Golden Globe Award winning and Oscar nominated actress Angela Bassett (who co-starred in “Waiting To Exhale” with Whitney), is set to direct the film, which is scheduled to premiere in 2015.

The Lifetime movie will follow the turbulent relationship between the legendary singer/actress with her singer/songwriter ex-husband Bobby Brown. The film will highlight their relationship from the time they met up and how they dealt with the overwhelming rewards and consequences of fame and fortune. There is no word yet on who will be playing the famous couple.
