Rihanna in Talks to Play Whitney in Biopic

As talk of a Whitney Houston biopic grows, Rihanna is considered a frontrunner to play the late singer. The Daily Mail reports that Whitney’s music mentor Clive Davis is helming the project and he reportedly wants filming to begin as soon as possible.

Some of the others in contention for the lead include “Dreamgirls” actress/singer Jennifer Hudson, who sang a heartfelt “I Will Always Love You” tribute at the 2012 Grammys, Vivica Fox, Megan Good and “American Idol” alum Jordin Sparks, who shared the screen with Houston in the upcoming flick “Sparkle.” There’s also talk that pint-sized Willow Smith may play a young Whitney.

The superstar singer died on February 11 in Los Angeles. The cause of death is still unknown. She was 48 years old.
