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 superstarā€”at different points in her lifeā€”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?
