Aaliyah

Family Vows To Torpedo Biopic

49 minutes ago BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0617-aaliyah-getty-01Aaliyah's family is on the attack against "Lifetime" ... vowing to stop production on her biopic.

Lifetime plans to start filming this summer .... chronicling the R&B singer's life and tragic death. 17-year-old Disney actress Zendaya has been cast as Aaliyah -- who died in 2001 in a plane crash.

Aaliyah's uncle and former manager, Barry Hankerson, tells us the family is pissed that no one from the network contacted them about the movie.

Hankerson says the family will block any attempt on Lifetime's part to use any of Aaliyah's music.  He says the family has hired a lawyer and will do everything they can to block release of the flick.

The family is not opposed to a big, theatrical film, but thinks a TV movie is too small for someone as big as Aaliyah.  

We called Lifetime ... so far no response.

I think its important for the person playing the role to look like the celeb they are playing...in any movie.

In the Biggie movie...every looked like the person they were portraying... especially Faith Evan's character... 

Mohammed Ali - Will Smith gained weight/body mass to look like him...

Ray.... Jamie Foxx favored him in size and was a strong piano player...

Dorothy Dandridge....Hallie Berry...spot on match in looks and body type

Lynn Whitefield...Josephine Baker....

Eamonn Walker as Howlin Wolf in Cadillac Records (he was the only 1 in that cast that actually favored their character, imo)

we are talking about the network that had Lindsay Lohan portray Elizabeth Taylor lol we should consider ourselves lucky.  Yaya resembles Whitney but i was hoping for someone more interesting to play her.  maybe she will surprise me.  Zendaya has a lot in common with Aaliyah, unlike Yaya who is not a professional singer.

i think people would've been ok with Jennifer Hudson playing Whitney..than someone who doesn't sing at all. 


I think Jennifer has the acting chops to do the role justice.
