B. Simone To Portray Aaliyah In Biopic
Even though Lifetime’s Aaliyah biopic is filming, a major motion picture focused on the life of the singer is in the works.
The film (which sounds a little catfishy) will star independent artist B. Simone and could possibly include Terrence Howard and Wood Harris with direction from “Sex Chronicles” author Zane.
For fans who haven’t been too excited about the plans Lifetime is reportedly making for its upcoming Aaliyah biopic, those associated with a different film about the singer’s life are sure their version of the movie will please.
For one thing, the feature film, expected to hit theaters in late 2015, will include favorite tracks recorded by Aaliyah before her death. In addition, there will be some never-before-released music, too.
“We’re in a position where we can do the feature film and we can do the music,” said a source close to production.
Singer B.Simone (pictured) has signed on to portray the “One in a Million” artist. Terrence Howard and Wood Harris were named as possible co-stars for the big-screen film, whose script will be written by author Zane. Most importantly, Aaliyah’s uncle and former manager, Barry Hankerson, is working on the project.
Though the TV movie is expected to air later this year, those connected to the feature film don’t think that will decrease the public’s interest in the larger production.
“I think if we do our due-diligence, people will watch the TV movie and still say, ‘I need to see the feature film,’” the source said.
Hmmmm…a couple questions.
1.) Do you believe this will ever really come to fruition????
2.) Do you think B. Simone looks more like Aaliyah than Alexandra Shipp ???
