The Whitney Houston story is coming to the big screen.
The legendary soul singer’s life story will be told in a new documentary, slated for release this summer. The film will feature never-before-soon footage and live performances. Rolling Stone reports that the Houston Estate has signed off on a project to be directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald.
Whitney is set to release through Roadside Attractions and Miramax on July 6th.
- She deserves to have her story told the right way.
- Macdonald also directed the Bob Marley doc, Marley.
- Macdonald said he wanted to tell the singer’s story as a mystery, asking, “Why did someone with so much raw talent and beauty self-destruct so publicly and painfully?”
- This will be tough to watch but may help bring some closure.
