Yaya DaCosta is portraying Whitney Houston in the upcoming Lifetime movie about her life, and she certainly looks the part! With curly hair, blue eyeshadow and bright red lips, the 31-year-old actress and America's Next Top Model alum perfectly channels the singer's 1997 Whitney album cover look. She also looks right at ease cradled in the arms of Arlen Escarpeta, the 33-year-old actor playing Bobby Brown on the small screen. Angela Bassett, who co-starred with Houston in 1995's Waiting to Exhale, is directing the film, but the late singer-actress's family is not involved in its production.

11 July 2014 8:55 AM, PDT | FEARnet | See recent FEARnet news »

A few weeks back we told you about Sony's intention to give a fully restored version of Ghostbusters a limited theatrical run to celebrate its 30th anniversary.  Now they have released a trailer for this upcoming event, and while there is nothing "new" in the trailer it looks fantastic (unlike the first Ghostbusters Blu-ray release a few years ago).

Following the one week run, on September 16th, a new collector’s edition Blu-ray set of the 1st and 2nd movie will go sale.  Both films are new 4k transfers, so they will look better than you have likely ever seen them.  And of course there will be special features:

Ghostbusters Blu-ray Special Features:

- New! Who You Gonna Call: A Ghostbusters Retrospective - Roundtable Discussion with Director Ivan Reitman and Dan Aykroyd (Part 1)

- New! Poster Art Gallery – Gallery 1988 artwork

Why is it so difficult to make a biopic?

28 June 2014 7:05 AM, PDT | EW - Inside Movies | See recent EW.com - Inside Movies news »

Update: On June 29, Lifetime announced Zendaya Coleman would no longer play Aaliyah in the biopic referenced in the article below, and that the production was on hold.

Original Post: The recipe for a music biopic should go something like this: Start with a beloved musician; add a string of crowd-pleasing hits; mix in a good dose of backstage drama; hit them with a triumphant and/or fatal finale; roll credits. But actually getting a film into theaters? It’s never been that simple—and as several pending biopics have learned lately, it’s not getting any easier.

26 June 2014 5:56 AM, PDT | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Ever since Angela Bassett announced she would direct a Lifetime film on beloved singer Whitney Houston, diehard fans—and most of the Internet—have speculated on nearly every aspect of the film. Who would play Houston, with her prodigious voice and winning smile? Would her daughter Bobbi Kristina appear in the movie? Would her family be involved? How would her ex-husband, singer-songwriter Bobby Brown, be depicted? And what of Houston’s death in 2012—would that make it to the small screen?

The upcoming biopic—titled Whitney Houston—will focus on the pop singer’s relationship with Brown; it’s the »

'Whitney Houston' Director Angela Bassett Has Found Her Bobby Brown

19 June 2014 11:42 AM, PDT | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

As I said in a post last night, regarding director Angela Bassett's casting choices for her upcoming directorial debut, the Lifetime Original Movie "Whitney Houston" (tentative title) - expect the unexpected, given who Bassett has cast thus far.  Almost no one thought of Yaya DaCosta Alafia as Whitney, but many were able to *see* her in the role after her casting was made official. And I don't believe Yolonda Ross' name was on anyone's lips when considering what actress would play Whitney Houston's longtime good friend and assistant, who was also rumored to be her lesbian lover - Robyn Crawford. Bassett pleasantly surprises us again today with her choice of actor to play the other half of that above very public relationship - Mr. Bobby BrownArlen Escarpeta has joined the cast of the telepic, as Brown, in a film that will will chronicle the headline-making partnership between the iconic singer, »

Following its Whitney Houston biopic announcement, Lifetime has announced that it is also planning Aaliyah movie — starring Disney Channel star turned singer Zendaya Coleman.
