There’s a report out there that Bobby Brown is trying to cash in on Whitney Houston‘s death by shopping around a script on his biopic. Brown even wants his only daughter with the late singer, Bobby Kristina, to appear in the movie.
Brown and writing partner Michael Pinckney chronicled his tumultuous life in a script titled “The Bad Boy of R&B: The Bobby Brown Story”. The script actually has been around last year before Houston’s death in February but it received little interest from Hollywood studios.
Now that Houston’s death channeled bigger attention towards the script, Brown is having it rewritten to include his ex-wife’s death. He won’t change a lot the rest of the story which includes a minimum touch on his volatile marriage to Houston.
“We actually wrote the script back in November and the movie lightly touches on their life and marriage together. We will now definitely have to go back in and revise the ending of the movie. This is such a sensitive subject which is why we did not push the fact that we have a script for the Bobby Brown story so soon,” Pinckney said. “We definitely wanted to give it some time to disseminate just out of respect to the family, friends and fans of Whitney Houston.”
Pinckney who is slated to take the director’s seat said there will be a search to find an actor to play Brown. They want an unknown to portray the “My Prerogative” singer.
