Clive Davis - Clive Davis' Rep Dismisses Houston Biopic Reports

A representative for music mogul Clive Davis has shot down reports he has shortlisted Jennifer Hudson and Rihanna to portray late superstar Whitney Houston in a rumoured biopic.
Davis, who discovered the soul singer and mentored her throughout her career, was allegedly planning to make Houston's life the subject of a new big screen film following her tragic death earlier this month (Feb12).
A Daily Mail report on Monday (27Feb12) stated Davis "wants to get a script finalised as soon as possible so filming can begin", with Rihanna and Hudson - who paid tribute to Houston at the Grammy Awards - were "in the running for the lead role".
But the rumours have proved to be completely false.
A spokesperson for Davis tells GossipCop.com, "There is no truth to this. Clive is not putting together a biopic."
