Whitney Houston 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody' Biopic On The Way

A Whitney Houston biopic is now in development.

Grammy-winning music producer Clive Davis, The Whitney Houston Estate, and Primary Wave are teaming up to bring the life of the iconic songstress to a feature film.

The film will be titled, I Wanna Dance with Somebody and talks are underway for Stella Meghie of The Photograph to direct.

Producers of the film say it will be a joyous, emotional and heart-breaking celebration of the life and music of the greatest female R&B pop vocalist of all time, tracking her journey from obscurity to musical superstardom. While being very frank about the price that super-stardom exacted, it will be both the rich and complex saga of the search for the perfect marriage between song and singer and audience, and at the same time the moving tale of a simple Jersey girl trying to find her way back home.
