Rihanna and Jennifer Hudson in the Running for Whitney Houston Biopic

Music mogul Clive Davis, Whitney Houston's mentor, is said to be spearheading a film about the late singer's life. Those on the short list to play the superstar—at different points in her life—are Rihanna, Jennifer Hudson, Willow Smith, and Vivica A. Fox. However Rihanna recently turned down a remake of The Bodyguard last year, saying, "I hate it when singers do singing movies all the time, because you can never look at them as anybody else. I want to play a character." Well, Whitney was definitely a character. But the real question is: Who will play Bobby Brown?
