Whitney Houston fans, rejoice!
An official documentary to honor the late singer is in pre-production, Altitude Film Entertainment announced on Thursday, April 28. Whitney sadly died in February 2012 at age 48 from an “accidental drowning” after being found unconscious and submerged in a hotel bathtub.

The highly-anticipated flick will be directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Kevin Macdonald.
“The film will for the first time, give audiences an unprecedented and unique look into Whitney’s life. This will be an unflinching and honest portrait of a rare talent told by those closest to her,” the statement read.
The documentary will also feature exclusive audio and never-before-seen videos of Whitney’s successful time as an iconic performer in the music business. We don’t know the movie’s exact premiere date, but it’s coming out in 2017. We can’t wait to watch!
