The first poster has been released for Whitney Houston biopic ‘I Wanna Dance With Somebody‘ starring Naomi Ackie. The film is directed Kasi Lemmons, working from a script by biopic expert Anthony McCarten (Bohemian Rhapsody among others).
Ackie plays Houston in the film that will, according to the official release, “take audiences on an emotional, energetic journey through Houston’s career and music.”
“Preparing to play Whitney Houston has been an incredible experience,”
Ackie told Deadline last year.
“I’ve learnt so much more about her and myself than I could have imagined. I’m so excited to get on that film set and honour her legacy! With Kasi on board, I know we can create something truly wonderful.”
The film reportedly has involvement from the Houston estate.
The film will be released in cinemas from 23rd December 2022.
