There's been rumors for years of a biopic movie about the late Aaliyah Dana Haughton.
Here's the latest on the topic:

"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.

“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.”

Sorces say the script for the movie 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.

This movie will showcase Aaliyah in a new light. Fans will be so proud of this piece, says Condon."

"Canadian singer Keshia Chante on playing the role, “Aaliyah inspired me and an entire generation. She was effortless and was capable of so many things. This is a hard undertaking, I have big shoes to fill but I am committed, determined and will train to the very end to master this role. I want Aaliyah’s fans and admirers to be proud of this film and feel like it was the best interpretation possible of our babygirl. I refuse to disappoint.”

Rumor? I thought it was in fact happening.

She does look like Aaliyah.
If she can't act, the film will suck. =[
I also was a HUGE Aaliyah fan, still am.

This chick is channeling A.D.H. for real. Keisha is an awesome artist. Let's hope she does the role justice. Follow the blog home skillet !

hey i hope this is good. if not i am going to be so mad. they say they are going in depth of her life i cant wait. for some reason i always had this hunch that aaliyah wasnt a pure angel i wanna see another side to her. i love her though. i hope this film does her justice and introduces her to another generation. i would've never picked her but if she does a great job we can get passed it.

I am really looking forward to seeing her. What a shame, the way she went. So needless! I miss seeing her but I am so glad she left a good body of quality work.

Be sure to stop by.

This could be a great movie, and this Keisha Chante would be a good pick on the look. Hopefully she can act.
