Whitney Houston documentary is in production

We will always love you...

Rebecca Keane

Whitney Houston was one of the best singers of all time.

It’s hard to deny that anyone can rival her vocals. Her rendition of I Will Always Love You is a song that will remain timeless.

After documentaries such as Kurt Cobain:Montage of Heck and Amy, it seems only fair that a documentary on the life of the legendary Whitney Houston be produced with talent and respect.

So it’s great news that Oscar-winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald, director of The Last King of Scotland and the Marley documentary in 2012 has been linked to the new project.

According to The Hollywood ReporterMacdonald has been working on the project for some time.

The project will be distributed by Altitude, the same company that released Amy, the 2015 biopic about the late jazz singer Amy Winehouse.

“I want audiences to walk out of the cinema and feel positive about Whitney and her music. I want to reveal a woman that even her most die-hard fans never knew and a woman those new to her life and music will never forget.”

Confirming the project, Will Clarke, chairman and co-CEO of Altitude, said:

“Whitney’s story, brought to screen by Kevin Macdonald and this producing team, will make for a truly compelling theatrical event for audiences worldwide.”

It has not been confirmed when the release date will be, however we’re getting the tissues ready.
