We reported back in January singer Keisha Chante has secured the role of Aaliyah for an upcoming biopic. The rumors about the movie having a small budget have changed. Bill Condon, director of the Beyonce and Jennifer Hudson movie Dreamgirls and writer of the movie Chicago, has been linked to the film. You know what this means!! We will all be enlightened with a big time flick.
Condon is known to attract big-time talent to his projects. According to Bossip, Condon has already secured Timbaland, Ginuwine, and Missy E. to appear in the film and play themselves. Even Hype Williams is on board to recreate Aaliyah’s final video shoot.
For all of you Chante haters, and I know there are many of you out there, don’t fret! Condon has put Chante through some serious training for this!
“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 will be seamless the same way it was for Selena fans who enjoyed Jennifer Lopez.”
