From Rolling Out Mag:

In the wake of Whitney Houston’s death, many have been sharing their thoughts, stories and opinions about the late singer. But according to actress Meagan Good, Houston was preparing to tell her own life’s story with a biopic and was considering none other than Good to play her in the film.Good broke the news about the planned biopic in an interview with E! Online, revealing that she and Houston had begun initial talks about creating the film.“We were fairly in the beginning stages,” Good said. “We were supposed to meet today actually.”Good said that the two were in the middle of discussing exactly how the film should end; on a high note or a low note.“My feeling is because she has the film Sparkle coming out and she’s brilliant in it and she looks beautiful and healthy — my feeling was that’s how we should end the movie — as a new beginning for her,” Good said.Since Houston’s death, all plans for the film have halted and Good says it’s too soon to think about resuming plans. But when the plans are revived, she says she will not attempt to do her own singing in the film.“I don’t think we’ve ever had a singer in history that I remember that could sing like her,” she said. “Plus, when people see someone’s life story they want to hear that person’s voice, because they connect with it in their spirit and their soul. So you would have to use her voice.”As the interview came to an end, Good became teary-eyed as she recalled her late friend’s vibrant personality and referred to her in the present tense.“For anybody spending time around Whitney, she’s so much fun,” she said. “She’s got just [has] a sassy attitude and is very funny and funky. She’s definitely a fun person to be around.”Let us know what you think about Good playing Houston in the comments below and check out a list of great film biopics after the cut. – nicholas robinson
