Probably a year or so ago Twitter was on fire at the prospects of Teyanna Taylor Playing Dionne Warwick, and it looks like it’s really going to happen.
During a recent interview with The Tamron Hall Show Teyana shared that they have already started working on it.
“We’re already working on it,” Teyana Taylor confirmed. “We’re in the building process right now. I’ve always wanted to make sure like, I could lock in with any person that I would be playing, you know?
How Angela and Tina [Turner] was, how Jamie Foxx and Ray Charles, you know what I’m saying? Like, to really get to know them and I miss when movies was like that, when you get to know them and tap in and just bond.”
“We talk almost every day. That’s my girl. Me, her, and her son. I mean, I’ve always been a firm believer in just always standing on safety.
She’s had a wonderful career, you know, and I think right now it’s about making her feel as safe as possible so she can tell her story. A lot of these stories get misconstrued or extremely dramatized to an extent and that’s not where we want to go.”
