Meagan Good might finally get the chance to live the dream of starring in Whitney Houston’s biopic.
Just days before Whitney’s untimely death, Meagan expressed her desire to play the departed diva. She mentioned that Whitney had thought about it, but Meagan didn’t speak on the fact that the singer was actually moving to bring her life story to the big screen.
Meagan revealed to E! News that she was actually in the process of starting talks on the film.
"We were fairly in the beginning stages," Meagan said last night at Juicy Couture’s party with Vanity Fair."We were supposed to meet today, actually."
The actress claimed that while chatting about a possible film, she and Whitney discussed how the movie should end. Prior to Whitney’s passing, Meagan had already told Vibe Vixen that Whitney’s most recent movie role would be a good point to wrap up the biopic.
"My feeling is because she has the film Sparkle coming out and she’s brilliant in it and she looks beautiful and healthy," Meagan told E! News, "my feeling was that’s how we should end the movie—as a new beginning for her."
With Whitney’s death still fresh in the hearts and minds of the public, Meagan hasn’t given much thought to the fate of the biopic. It’s just too soon to consider, she feels. Should the film ever go into go into production, Meagan has decided she’s not going to try her hand at singing Whitney’s music.
"I don’t think we’ve ever had a singer in history that I remember that could sing like her," Meagan reasoned. "Plus, when people see someone’s life story, they want to hear that person’s voice because they connect with it, in their spirit and their soul. So you would have to use her voice."
Meagan’s got a very personal connection to the biopic as she bonded with Whitney in the diva’s final days. "For anybody spending time around Whitney, she’s so much fun," a misty-eyed Meagan remembered. "She’s got just like a sassy attitude and is very funny and funky. She’s definitely a fun person to be around."
