The director for the new Aaliyah biopic are doing extensive research for the little lookalike, Keisha Chante:

Fans anticipating R&B singer/actress Aaliyah’s forthcoming biopic can rest assured that the film is going to be as seamless as Jennifer Lopez’s praised role in Selena. According to Bill Condon, the director for the as-yet-untitled pic and famed director of the hit film ‘Dreamgirls’ starring Jennifer Hudson, Beyonce Knowles and Jamie Foxx, Aaliyah’s biopic and its cast are studying hard to make sure the pic is up to par. “We are going to great extremities to make this movie perfect. We have (Keisha) Chante in extensive… …training studying, speaking with family members, watching personal footage and in choreography training with Aaliyah’s choreographer and dear friend Fatima Robinson. This movie will will be seamless the same way it was for Selena fans who enjoyed Jennifer Lopez.” In addition to Keisha Chante, who has been cast as Aaliyah, the “One In A Million” singer’s choreographer Fatima Robinson, Timbaland, Ginuwine, and Missy Elliott are to be featured in the film. “Rock The Boat” music video director Hype Williams has also been tapped for the film to recreate Aaliyah’s final video shoot.

Sources close to the much-anticipated film say they’ll be “going deep into Aaliyah’s life”.

Notorious was good, but this one has the possibilty of being great. Aaliyah left a lot of unanswered questions about herself and her career. Hopefully this film will provide some insight.

Here is the throwback jawn from our fallen Angel, Rock the Boat.

    @Yauna:

    I know that’s right!! Still an angel she is. The girl they have playing her is really cute. And I am NOT going to cry at work while watching the video. I will wait until I go home.

    They better make sure this film is NOT like Notorious. But then again, Notorious was a hood movie anyway. So…no comp.

    I definately won’t be seeing this one on opening night. Until someone can assure me that they are going to address the R. Kelly saga, I want no parts of it. To say nothing of the juicy behind the scenes battle between Jay and Dame over her. At least Dame beat Jay at one thing. Aaliyah was adorable, but her taste in men sucked.
