Canadian filmmaker Stella Meghie will direct a highly anticipated biopic on the late singing legend Whitney Houston.
The Oshawa-raised writer-director posted the news about “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” on her official social media accounts.
Houston’s Facebook account says Sony’s TriStar Pictures division won an auction for the rights to the feature.
It also says four-time Oscar-nominated writer-producer Anthony McCarten is penning the script, with record producer Clive Davis and Houston’s estate onboard.
The biopic is set for release for late 2022. Houston was 48 when she died in 2012.
