WHITNEY HOUSTON: A “No Holds Barred” Movie
Written by Tony Williams on August 20, 2020
Clive Davis promises the upcoming Whitney Houston bio-pic will be a “no holds barred” portrait of the late singer-actress. His disappointment regarding previous documentaries on the ill-fated artist led to his hands-on involvement in this project.
The music mogul who guided Houston’s career will co-write the movie script. He tells the Variety podcast Strictly Business, “I have a mission… that the full picture of Whitney Houston is captured in a no-holds-barred film that is musically rich and shows her genius and more of her character than we have seen to date.”
The movie will use Whitney’s recordings, so whomever is cast won’t have to sing — opening up the role to actresses whose strengths aren’t musical.
