OH I GOTTA SEE THIS I BEEN FOLLOWING THIS FOR AWHILE.....





It has been reported that Warner Brother Films will be creating the motion picture of the late singer and actress Aaliyah who died in a plane crash in 2001. Aaliyah sold more than 32 million albums worldwide before her career was cut short. The film will be a biopic of the singers life. Bill Condon, director of “DreamGirls” will be directing the film.

“We are going to great extremities to make this movie perfect. We have Chante in extensive training studying, speaking with family members, watching personal footage and in choreography training with Aaliyah’s choreographer and dear friend Fatima Robinson. This movie will be seamless the same way it was for Selena fans who enjoyed Jennifer Lopez. I can promise Aaliyah fans that this movie will be ten notches higher.”

A source for the film reveals that they “will be going very deep into Aaliyah’s life” and will allow fans to see the “most intimate side of Aaliyah’s legacy.” Sources say the script for the film ‘holds no bars’ and will go as far as touching on the subject of Aaliyah’s highly debated and publicized marriage and annulment to producer R.Kelly.

It has also been confirmed Aaliyah’s colleagues will be featured in the film. Her choreographer Fatima Robinson, Producer and friends, Timbaland, Missy Elliot, Ginuwine, even world renowed music video director Hype Williams will be apart of the film and help re-create the “Rock The Boat” video set which was the last video Aaliyah ever shot. The movie is tentative to start production end of March and is rumored to have a production budget of over 80 million dollars.



THE GIRL THEY GOT TO PLAY AALIYAH IS ARTIST KIESHA CHANTE. IT WAS BETWEEN HER , DESTINEY LIGHTSY AND AMERICAN IDOL COTESTANT LISA TUCKER.

I guess this is going to be the new thing in hollywood, recreating lives on the big screen. Although Notorious was good it was very rushed and missed on many keyparts. I loved aaliyahs work, although not a huge fan I respect her artistry and the impact she had on the R&B game. with that said if they do this movie, hopefully done tastefully and correctly. All 3 girls look very much like her, but I would go with Kisha

So much has began circling around baby girl lately. I just wish the negatives die-down. But I will say being a MAJOR Aaliyah fan I can not wait till this hits Theater's. I have faith that they will portray her life wonderfully on the big screen. I feel they did a wonderful job in casting the young lady to play Aaliyah. All others where wonderful also.
