Lifetime is ready to try their hand at another biopic — and this time the network is taking on the life story of Toni Braxton.
via Showbizz 411:
Actor Vondie Curtis Hall is directing “Unbreak My Heart: The Toni Braxton Story” for Lifetime. Coolness. Vondie is the “Chicago Hope” actor who also is featured in the “Daredevil” TV series and appears in the new movie “Experimenter.” Vondie’s directed a lot of TV, as well as Mariah Carey’s notorious “Glitter.” He’s married to director Kasi Lemmons.
Braxton’s movie is based on her autobiography. Her story has lot of triumphs and sadness including #1 hits and two personal bankruptcies. She had a recent comeback once again with an album of duets with Kenny “Babyface” Edmonds. Her movie will feature Edmonds, LA Reid, Reid’s first wife Pebbles, and Braxton’s singing sisters.
Lord — we can only imagine the casting for THIS one. Updated: According to Deadline, Toni is set to STAR in the film.
Let’s just hope it’s closer to Whitney’s biopic than Aaliyah’s.
