A Whitney Houston biopic will be in theaters this December

A new biopic about Whitney Houston will be in theaters December 21st. The first trailer for " I Wanna Dance with Somebody" was released this week. The big difference between this newest movie and the others about Whitney is who is telling her story. Legendary record producer Clive Davis is the producer of this film. Davis signed Whitney to her first recording contract when she was 19. Pat Houston who was Whitney's long time manager and sister in law is the co-producer. Davis and Houston were close to Whitney throughout her entire career. Pat Houston is also the executor of Whitney's estate.

British actress Naomi Ackie plays Whitney. Clive Davis is played by well known American actor Stanley Tucci. Houston grew up in East Orange and lived in Mendham for many years. She was nominated for 25 Grammy Awards and won 6 times. She died on February 11th 2012 after accidently drowning in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. Sony Pictures says the film is "A no holds barred portrait of the complex and multifaceted woman behind the voice."
