America’s Next Top Model contestant Yaya DaCosta landed the role of Whitney Houston in Lifetime Network’s new biopic on the singer’s life and death. The biopic is in the production stages, and Yaya recreated Whitney’s 1987 album cover in a photo shoot. “I just looked at the picture and did the pose,” she told Entertainment Weekly.
Former Disney actress Zendaya Coleman walked out on another biopic bankrolled by Lifetime Network. The Aaliyah project was put on hold after Aaliyah’s family refused to give the network rights to use her music in the TV film.
