The producers have tapped a 28 year old British actress to play music legend Whitney Houston in a new film about her life and times.

Naomi Ackie will play the late multi-Grammy winner in “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” which is being scripted by the same writer behind the Freddie Mercury film “Bohemian Rhapsody.”

Ackie is a BAFTA award winning actress from London who played Jannah in the 2019 film “Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker.”

Houston died in 2012 at the age of 48.
