Hmmm, So Toni Braxton Has A Biopic, See The Actress Playing Her
So we all have a love/hate relationship with these biopics lately. We all love the idea of seeing a movie that covers the lives of our favorite singers and entertainers. But with biopics like the Whitney Houston story, or the Aaliyah story it has surely put a bad taste in our mouths. Word on the “old school curb” is that Babyface is set to produce the film entitled, “Unbreak My Heart” which will premiere in January 2016.
Check out what Vibe is reporting regarding the Lifetime biopic.
While it was originally reported that the famed singer would star as herself in the upcoming Lifetime project, it looks like the film will feature an actress to play Braxton’s younger self.
Newcomer Lex Scott Davis has been tapped, marking her first major film role. Previously, Davis has held minor TV roles and also played an extra in Straight Outta Compton, The Wrap reports.
Unbreak My Heart is based on the singer’s 2014 memoir of the same name, and is set to focus on Braxton’s music career as well as her struggles with divorce, her finances, and her son’s autism. Braxton will serve as the executive producer, and is still set to make an appearance in the film. Following the airing of the biopic, Lifetime will also premiere a one-hour special entitled Beyond The Headlines: Toni Braxton, featuring interviews with her family and friends.
