Meagan Good is a rumored favorite for the role and actually discussed it with Houston herself.
“We were fairly in the beginning stages,” she told E! Online. She later added that before the singer’s death, they agreed that the project should end on a positive 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.”
