The Whitney Houston Estate is reportedly livid over Angela Bassett’s plans to direct a TV biopic on the Lifetime network about the life of Whitney Houston. When contacted by TMZ, Whitney’s sister Pat Houston said, “Whitney is certainly worthy of more than a television movie. If Whitney were here today, this would not be happening.”

The film, which will premiere in 2015, will be based on the marriage of Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown. In a statement released by Lifetime, Angela spoke about the biopic saying,

“I have such regard for both Whitney’s and Bobby’s amazing talents and accomplishments; and I feel a responsibility in the telling of their story. Their humanity and bond fascinates us all. I’m beyond excited to have this opportunity to go behind the camera and into their world.”
