The late singer Aaliyah said it best “If at first you don’t succeed,dust yourself off and try again.” It is no mystery that the Aaliyah “debacle” has gone on too long, and most have not been happy with the fact that Lifetime Movie Network is shooting a T.V. movie on the late R&B singers life starring Alexandra Shipp.
Now there is another version which is set to hit theaters next year and will star an unknown actress/singer by the name of B.Simone. A source close to production confirms with S2S (Sister2Sister Magazine) that a “better” depiction of the late R&B singers life will be brought to the big screen.
“For one thing, the feature film, expected to hit theaters in late 2015, will include favorite tracks recorded by Aaliyah before her death. In addition, there will be some never-before released music, too. We’re in a position where we can do the feature film and we can do the music.”
B. Simone seems to be closer in resemblance to the late singer. It is also reported that “A” list actors including Terrence Howard and Wood Harris could possibly be co-stars in the film.
Best-Selling Author Zane will write the script and Aaliyah’s Uncle/ Former Manager Barry Hankerson has agreed to sign on and help with production.
The next question is how well with they stick to the authenticity of Aaliyah’s life without having those closest to the late singer including her Brother, Mother, Father or even musical producers who worked closest to her such as Missy Elliott and Timbaland.
Take a look at Singer B. Simone, do you think she is a good fit?
