By  |  0 Comments

Just weeks after Lifetime pulled the plug on the Aaliyah biopic, it has been picked back up with new executive producers and a new lead actress to play the late star.

Today is Wendy Williams’ birthday, but she also broke the news that the Aaliyah biopic is back on and that Zendaya has been replaced with rising star Alexandra Shipp. She also told the world via Twitter that she has jumped on board as one of the film’s executive producers.

With everything back on schedule, the movie is still expected to film this summer and be released in the fall assuming that production doesn’t experience anymore speed bumps.
