Rihanna is really stepping up her acting game as of late, and sources are saying that Clive Davis is considering her for the role of Whitney Houston in a biopic that he is producing. Rihanna has some stiff competition, with Jennifer Hudson and Jordan Sparks also on the short list for the lead role.
Will Smith’s 11-year-old daughter Willow Smith is thought to be portraying the actress as a child, and Vivica Fox is being considered to play Whitney during the years leading up to her death.
Clive Davis is finalizing the script now and hopes to begin shooting immediately. Who do you think would do a better job at playing Whitney – Rihanna, Jennifer Hudson, or Jordan Sparks? Brandy has also spoken out about the “dream role.” Or perhaps a newcomer would do a better job? What do you think??
