Yaya DaCosta cast as Whitney Houston in planned TV movie Model-turned-actress YAYA DACOSTA is preparing to bring WHITNEY HOUSTON back to life on the small screen after landing the lead role in a planned TV biopic.

Angela Bassett is stepping behind the camera to make her directorial debut with the project for America's Lifetime network, and she has cast The Butler star as the tragic R&B icon, according to TVLine.com.

The film, tentatively-titled I Will Always Love You: The Whitney Houston Story, will focus on the singer's rise to fame, her turbulent marriage to Bobby Brown and her drug issues. It is expected to air next year (15).
