Lifetime has tapped Angela Bassett to direct their Whitney Houston biopic, says Deadline.

Bassett, who co-starred with Houston in “Waiting to Exhale”, makes her directorial debut on the project. The 2015 telemovie “chronicles the tumultuous relationship between Houston and singer-songwriter Bobby Brown — from the time they first met at the very height of their celebrity through their courtship and rocky marriage, all during Whitney’s meteoric rise as a singer, actress and model”, says the outlet.

“I have such regard for both Whitney’s and Bobby’s amazing talents and accomplishments, and I feel a responsibility in the telling of their story,” said Bassett. “Their humanity and bond fascinates us all.”
