The author of Bohemian Rhapsody has a brand new musical biopic: I Wanna Dance With Somebody, concerning the lifetime of the late, nice Whitney Houston. The movie is directed by Kasi Lemmons and stars Naomi Ackie from Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker as the long-lasting pop star — though Houston’s singing voice within the trailer is unmistakably her personal.
