Whitney Houston Considers Starring In Civil War Film...
[From MTV News]
With husband Bobby Brown spending the rest of
this week in a Florida jail, singer Whitney Houston has announced plans to co-produce a
new Civil War film which she may act in. Houston will team with Lawrence Bender, Quentin
Tarantino's long-time producer and partner in their A Band Apart production house, to
oversee a film about a female slave and an illegitimate white man whom the state of North
Carolina classified as a slave, according to "Variety."
One of Houston's partners in her Brownhouse production company said that the singer, who
last appeared on-screen in 1996's "The Preacher's Wife," had yet to decide
whether or not to take a role in the picture, and was awaiting screenwriter Paris Qualles'
final script before making a decision.
Up next for Houston is a planned starring role opposite Will Smith in the romantic-comedy
"Anything for You," although Smith's growing film commitments may keep him from
beginning work on the picture after he wraps work on "The Wild, Wild West."
