Another musical legend is getting an all-new biopic, as a Whitney Houston movie is now in the works. Called I Wanna Dance with Somebody, the biopic will be written by Bohemian Rhapsody writer Anthony McCarten with The Photograph helmer Stella Meghie on board to direct. Music producer Clive Davis is developing the project directly with Pat Houston of the Houston Estate as well, as the two will produce alongside Primary Wave Music’s Larry Mestel, Denis O’Sullivan, and writer Anthony McCarten.
As the Houston Estate is directly involved with the project, Houstin’s music catalog will be available for use in the movie. This means we’ll be able to hear some of the legendary singer’s best songs featured in the biopic, such as “Saving All My Love for You,” “How Will I Know,” “Where Do Broken Hearts Go,” and so many more. Of course, Houston also recorded original music for the 1992 movie The Bodyguard, also starring in the film opposite Kevin Costner. Her song “I Will Always Love You” from the movie’s official soundtrack still remains one of Houston’s most well-known hits of all time.
