If you’ve ever wondered what Aaliyah looked like in middle school, then you may want to take a look at the actress that has been chosen to play her in an upcoming film.   Reports are stating that Aaliyah is going to be played by Zendaya, an actress and singer that has experience from The Disney Channel.   But the response that we’ve been getting on social media is that this girl might be the wrong choice.  Aaliyah had a maturity and sexiness that doesn’t seem to be matched by Zendaya and it’s turning into a complete disaster. 

But it doesn’t matter what we think.  Read more of the report below and give us your opinion.  Can this woman play Aaliyah?  Will you go see the film if she is the star? Read more: 

Singer-actress Zendaya is set to star in Lifetime’s original movie “Aaliyah: Princess of R&B” (working title) about the life of the late actress and R&B artist Aaliyah, who died in a plane crash in 2001.

Zendaya will record four of Aaliyah’s songs for the film, based on the bestseller “Aaliyah: More Than a Woman” by former Time Magazine music editor Christopher Farley.

Known to most by only her first name, Aaliyah Dana Haughton made her debut on “Star Search” at age 10 and was only 22 years old when a plane carrying her and some of her video crew crashed after taking off from a Bahamian runway. The film will depict her journey and rise to fame.

Like the young star she will portray, Zendaya has delved into both music and acting and even landed the runner-up spot on season 16 of “Dancing With the Stars.” After starring on the Disney Channel series “Shake It Up!” Zendaya released her self-titled 2013 debut full-length album. She is also set to star in the upcoming Disney Channel original series “K.C. Undercover” and the Disney Channel original movie “Zapped,” which premieres this summer.
