Written by Vibe Houston Staff on December 22, 2020
The ‘Grande Dame’ of soul music, Dionne Warwick, is in the early stages of developing her biopic and she wants R&B Goddess Teyana Taylor to play her.
Warwick, who recently joined social media, shared her biopic vision with her legion of Twitter followers and wrote that Taylor playing her would be the only option.
“Now I really gotta know this: if I did a series, would you guys really watch? I want you to be honest now,” Warwick said in a video.
Netflix and Taylor, who were both tagged in the post, both responded with excitement about being included in the project.
“When the LEGENDARY @therealdionnew had this moment w/ @netflix & they started jotting notes in their palm pilots…I was lookin at them likeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee,” Teyana replied. “P.S. One thing about them doors…..They open.”
