Whitney Houston & Bobby Brown Together in First-Look Photo From Angela Bassett's Directorial Debut
week, we were treated to our first look at Yaya DaCosta Alafia as
Whitney Houston in a solo shot, for Angela Bassett's upcoming
directorial debut for the Lifetime network - a shot that mimicked the
album cover of the late singer's hit 1987 studio album (her 2nd)
"Whitney."Today, as you can see above, we've got a first look
at the couple together - DaCosta as Houston, joined by Arlen Escarpeta
as Bobby Brown.
The telepic will
chronicle the headline-making partnership between the iconic singer,
actress, producer and model, and singer, songwriter Bobby Brown - from
the time they first met at the very height of their celebrity, to their
courtship and tumultuous marriage.
Bassett is directing the film,
which is tentatively titled "Whitney Houston," from a script penned by
Shem Bitterman ("Betty & Coretta" - the Lifetime Original Movie that
Bassett starred in last year).
Larry Sanitsky (who produced "Betty & Coretta") will do the same for "Whitney Houston."
Alafia and Escarpeta in front of the camera is Yolonda Ross, playing
Whitney Houston's longtime good friend and assistant, who was also
rumored to be her lesbian lover - Robyn Crawford.
Shooting is currently underway in Los Angeles. The film is scheduled to debut in 2015.
