Naomi Ackie is in final negotiations to portray Whitney Houston in Sony’s forthcoming musical biopic, I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

Stella Meghie, who is set to direct the film written by Anthony McCarten, shared why Naomi was the perfect choice to portray “The Voice.”

We spent the better part of the last year in an exhaustive search for an actress who could embody Whitney Houston. Naomi Ackie impressed us at every stage of the process. I was moved by her ability to capture the stage presence of a global icon while bringing humanity to her interior life.

I Wanna Dance With Somebody is slated to be released Thanksgiving 2022.
