We have been (im)patiently waiting for an Aaliyah biopic for YEARS now! First there will be one and then our hopes and dreams are shot down. Now, hopefully, this is the real deal. BET has confirmed that 17-year old actress/singer, Zendaya has been confirmed to play the late Aaliyah.
The movie will be shown on the Lifetime Network and will tell the story of the "Rock the Boat" singer's life and death. It has been said that the story will be based on based on the best-selling book Aaliyah: More Than a Woman.
Let us just say that Aaliyah has always been our FAVORITE! We were super fans lol like super to the point that we dressed up like her for Halloween and wore our hair like hers literally for years!
We really hope that this movie is beyond amazing or we will seriously be devastated. We aren't doubting anyone's acting/producing/directing abilities, but this needs to be beyond great!
Very few details have been released about the upcoming film besides a projected release date for this fall. Zendaya is set to appear on BETs 106 & Park tonight to fill us in about the project!
