It was, undoubtedly, inevitable—Lifetime has announced that the movie Whitney Houston is in the works. The lead actress and actor have yet to be named, but the 2015 film will center around Houston's tumultuous relationship with Bobbi Brown. This will be Oscar-nominated actress Angela Bassett's first stab at directing, having last appeared as Coretta Scott King in Lifetime's 2013 film Betty & Coretta.
