Meagan Good could be set to play Whitney Houston in a new biopic of t he late singer.

Record executive Clive Davis, a close friend of Whitney's, is said to be leading the project, and The Wrap reports Tyler Perry has expressed an interested in directing.

Meagan, who is currently starring opposite Will Ferrell in Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues has told The LA Times that a Whitney Houston biopic is her "dream project", and revealed she had been discussing a potential film with the singer before her death in February last year.

Following Whitney's tragic demise speculation began as to who might play her in the film of her life.

Rihanna, Jennifer Hudson, Vivica A Fox and Whitney's Sparkle co-star Jordin Sparks have all be linked to the role.

The film is still a way off, as it is not officially in development at any major studio.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Capricorn:

Your dry humour will be very popular. It's always difficult bringing a large group of people together. Everybody feels like they are walking on eggshells.

Watching a light hearted comedy can also be a great way to generate a festive atmosphere. This is a time when people can put their differences aside.More
