Sony to Release Whitney Houston Biopic 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody'

A new Whitney Houston biopic is coming.

Sony and TriStar Pictures won a bidding war for I Wanna Dance With Somebody, based on the life of the late icon, and it will be released Thanksgiving of 2022, Deadline reported on Tuesday (August 4).

Stella Meghie is set to direct, and the movie has the support of Whitney‘s estate. Bohemian Rhapsody screenwriter Anthony McCarten will pen the script.

The movie is “meant to cover her prime as a performer, including her work on The Bodyguard and her legendary performance of the national anthem at the 1991 Super Bowl, while alluding to her tragic death in 2012. The film will also feature many of Houston’s hit songs.”

Clive Davis is producing the film, as well as Pat Houston on behalf of her estate.

“From all my personal and professional experience with Whitney from her late teenage years to her tragic, premature death, I know the full Whitney Houston story has not yet been told. I am so glad that Anthony McCarten has committed to a no holds barred, musically rich screenplay that finally reveals the whole Whitney whose vocal genius deeply affected the world while she bravely battled the demons that were to be her undoing,” Clive said in a statement.

Whitney Houston's Best Friend Robyn Crawford Says Bobby Brown Did Not Introduce Her to Cocaine - Watch

The late Whitney Houston‘s best friend Robyn Crawford is continuing to speak out.

The 58-year-old best friend of the late singer opened up in an interview with NBC News’ Craig Melvin for a special edition of Dateline, which airs in full on Saturday (November 9) at 9 p.m. ET.

After confirming their long-rumored romantic relationship, Robyn is now confirming that Bobby Brown is not the one who introduced Whitney to cocaine, despite the commonly held public belief.

“I would remind Whitney that, you know, we said doing coke couldn’t go where we’re going and we’re already there. So we shouldn’t be doing it. I’d notice that she would go ahead and do it. She was having difficulty stopping,” Robyn said of Whitney‘s drug use, and her difficulty with stopping.

“She wasn’t doing it [drugs] regularly, but she would do it sometimes and might, you know-overdo it. But, you know, Bobby, he didn’t introduce her to cocaine,” she went on to say.

Whitney Houston's Best Friend Robyn Crawford Confirms Their Romantic Relationship

After years of speculation that the late Whitney Houston and her best friend Robyn Crawford had a romantic relationship, Robyn herself is now speaking out and confirming those rumors.

The 58-year-old best friend of the late singer opened up about their love affair in her upcoming memoir, A Song For You: My Life with Whitney Houston.

In the book, Robyn details their first meeting as counselors at a summer camp in New Jersey.

“We wanted to be together, and that meant just us,” she writes in the book.

According to Robyn, Whitney ended the physical part of their relationship early after signing a record deal with Clive Davis, apparently by giving Robyn a Bible in 1982.

“She said we shouldn’t be physical anymore because it would make our journey even more difficult. She said if people find out about us, they would use this against us, and back in the ’80s that’s how it felt…I kept it safe. I found comfort in my silence,” she went on to say.

She also spoke about pressure from Whitney‘s family.

Whitney told me her mother said it wasn’t natural for two women to be that close, but we were that close…we never talked about labels, like lesbian or gay. We just lived our lives and I hoped it could go on that way forever.”

Whitney knows I loved her and I know she loved me. We really meant everything to each other. We vowed to stand by each other,” she writes.
