1st Look: Whitney Houston Biopic

Wow! Sony Studios dropped the first trailer of Whitney Houston’s biopic… And it looks GOOOOD! The sneak peek of the new film, I Wanna Dance with Somebody is powerful and moving! 

I Wanna Dance with Somebody is a music biographical drama about the life and times of iconic R&B pop star, Whitney Houston. 

The new biopic has great casting! Naomi Ackie, in Star Wars: Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker, stars as the late iconic singer. Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci, who plays Clive Davis, looks spot-on as the famous music producer.

This is not the first time a biopic has been done about the talented Superstar. However, this one has the blessing of the Houston family. The biopic seems to be in good hands too! Bohemian Rhapsody writer Anthony McCarten wrote this new film. Also, Houston’s former manager and friend, music executive Clive Davis is a producer on the project.
