(FILE) Whitney Houston Dies at 48 in Beverly Hills

Woah, this is gonna be CRAZY!

The first ever estate-authorized documentary on Whitney Houston is in the works, with Kevin Macdonald at the helm set to direct.

Sure, it could be a pandering, soft-focus look at the singer’s life, but it could also be awesome and I’m choosing to believe it’s going to be awesome, what with the “unprecedented” levels of access he has to Whitney’s closest family and friends, alongside hours and hours of never before seen video from the singer’s life at every point.

Macdonald has already won an Oscar for his powerful terrorism documentary One Day In September, said of his motivation centering on Whitney in the project:

“The story that is never told about Whitney is just how brilliant she was as an artist; by many measures she had the greatest voice of the last 50 years. She changed the way pop music was sung — bringing it back full circle to its blues and gospel roots. She was also completely unique in being a black pop star who sold in countries where black artists don’t traditionally sell.”

Macdonald included more thoughts on what we should expect in the film:

“We have access to never-before-seen footage of Whitney that charts her whole life from her beginnings singing in her Church’s gospel choir to the day of her tragic death at the age of 48, and three decades of her music including exclusive demo recordings, rare performances and audio archive. Although we won’t shy away from the darker parts of Whitney’s life — her descent into addiction — I want audiences to walk out of the cinema and feel positive about Whitney and her music. I want to reveal a woman that even her most die-hard fans never knew; and a woman those new to her life and music will never forget.”

No date has been set yet for a release, but obvi, it’s going to be a huge deal. I just hope it’s done right!
