She was one of the greatest voices, but she died at the age of 48. Whitney Houston was found drowned in the bathtub after consuming a cocktail of cocaine and other substances.
A film about the singer's life is now being prepared in Hollywood, after the diva's heirs gave their consent.
The film "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" will be co-produced by New Zealand screenwriter Anthony McCarten, who has already written the script for the new production. Anthony McCarten, 58, has had great success with a number of recent productions, all of which are biographical films - "The Theory of Everything" (2014), "Darkest Hour" (2017), "Bohemian Rhapsody" (2018). ) and "The Two Popes" (2019).
The production will bring to light many of the stories Whitney Houston lived behind the curtain, after her hidden life was presented to the public in several documentaries. "Whitney" recounted the testimony of some people who claimed that the artist was sexually assaulted in her youth by a cousin. The second documentary, "Whitney: Can I Be Me", evokes the singer's love affair with another woman, Robyn Crawford.
"I know Whitney Houston's story hasn't been fully told yet," said Clive Davis. The famous music producer specified that the script of the new production will be "without taboos" and "rich in music".
