Casting Begins For Aaliyah Biopic



A little birdie tells me casting has already begun for an upcoming Aaliyah biopic...

My source tells me Nicole and Eddie Murphy's daughter Bria has already auditioned for the part.


Casting director Twinkie Bird is handling auditions

Lord Jesus I hope they don't put Rhianna's nonsinging, nondancing ass as Aaliyah.

Bria's ugly ass need to stop. She wouldn't be getting any jobs if she wasn't Eddie's daughter. Shane is much prettier than Bria's ugly ass.

You already pressed over Rihanna and her name isn't even mentioned in story.
Believe it or not, Rihanna sells if not her non singing ass wouldn't be as successful.

Biopic for what????

This seems uncalled for.

Damn a Biopic, just have a video and live performance and behind the scenes footage special...Not every deceased person needs a damn televised story of their life......the movie industry is so sorry and lazy these decades.

They need to cast this singer songwriter by the name of Sabi as the role of Aaliyah. If you don't know her check out her video on YouTube called "where they do that at" she looks just like Aaliyah reincarnated.

@1:26 ummmm hell naw Rihanna doesn't represent Aaliyah at all... the more person who actual deserve the Job would be Keisha Chante ( from 106&park).... no one else

WTF??!!!!!! said...

Oh hell!!! watch them cast Zoe Saldana. They put her ass in everything she don't belong in. She must leave a permanent indentation on the casting couch.

She looks so pretty in that picture

@ 1:30 PM (Rhianna defender)

MILLIONS of people don't want Rhianna to destroy a role as Aaliyah, it's not about being "pressed", why should someone have to wait for Rhianna to be listed as a possibility before they SCREAM OUT PLEASE NO?
And selling doesn't seem to have anything AT ALL to do with TALENT these days, artist are selling not because of musical/dancing talent, they're selling because of personality and style, fans like them for that. Example, Ciara/Omarion- talented dancers, lame personality=unsuccessful, Nicole Schizzzqirtb (whatever), talented singer, lame personality=unfulfilled career
Being attractive also overrides talent, Megan Fox, Kim Kardashian.

So defending Rhianna as a talent is ridiculous because talent is irrelevant to selling and being successful in this sex selling, cool personality, being pretty overrides talent industry

Yeah it does seem like we know everything already but with proper casting I would watch. Who will play Dame, RKelley and JayZ and will her sordid past of screwing all three of them be mentioned? Is this going to realistic?

Anonymous said...

RhymesWithSnitch please STOP reporting lies.. The Haughton Family has already said that there is no biopic. ya'll blog restart this rumor every few months. Clearly this story is a lie and your sources are make believe

Anonymous said...

it should be Yonce or Sasha Fierce...either one of them

I thought Kanye was gonna have them cast Kim? Whatever happened to that?

How about Kenya Moore with her ashy old closer to 50 than 30 ass. Kenya's 1 stan would buy every ticket.

I dont wanna see no Aaliyah biopic film unless they tell the truth about R Kelly, damon dash, JayZ and the rest of the industry thats she's slept with

Damn, Beyonce has been doing the most to stay relevant and till this day we are still talking about the late Aaliyah and her impact in the music business. R.I.P. Baby Girl!

zeeedeee said...

@1:49 you GOTS to be kiddin me!!!..that was a joke right?

Anonymous said...

Are they going to be real in this bio pic or is it going to be all fluff. Are they going to talk about her parents signing her over to a pedophile (R. Kelly) at the age of 15? Are they going to go into her relationship with Jay and Dame Dash or is this going to be the pretty bubble gum fairy tale version of her life cause if so I ain't interested.

Bria is beautiful but no...

Anonymous said...

Instead of doing a movie why not do a book? I would love for a true story to come out and for it to tell the truth. When is R Kelly's ex-wife going to tell the real story? She knows what happened with that child molester and what he did to ALL OF THOSE LITTLE GIRLS. How do some of you people still even buy his music or go to his shows? Wow...I expect it from white people to just overlook stuff but not us.

Anonymous said...

This will be a dirty and sordid tale if it's based in truth.
Aaliyah's life seemed sad and depressing.
She was always a lost and used little girl to me.

Have yet to see any woman as beautiful as Aaliyah - this is going to be one tough casting call

She's too ugly..

Did yall know Aaliyah was bisexual as well? Will her various girlfriends be mentioned in the film?........

Anonymous said...

4:06 OHHHHH...do tell!!!

Anonymous said...

They need to cast an up and coming nobody... More importantly, who is going to play R. Kelly?

Anonymous said...

One thing I will say is, it does not need to be ANY big name celebrity.........Because all that'll do is piss off Aaliyahs fans because it'll turn into it being all about whatever celebrity it is......it needs to be an unknown, very talented actress who can pull off Aaliyah's nuances.

PERIOD.

Anonymous said...

I agree with everyone else who's asking if this is going to be a tell all film or some bubble gum fairytale? Aaliyah was cute but homegirl got around.

Anonymous said...

Well, since they want to go there, they had better do Aaliyah justice. They can't let just any old body play Aaliyan. To this day, Aaliyah still has die hard fans, so if this movie isn't up to par, her fans, including me..will be going AWF! Not only that but they had better include her family's input or risk being sued. Hey, It's only fair!

Anonymous said...

What about (again) Keyshia Chante or that other youtube girl? I'm sure Drake will get the part of being Aaliyah's brother lol

Anonymous said...

@4:23PM

Yea Aaliyah allegedly had a girlfriend in high school. Said that her and Kidada Jones were more than friends as well. Missy was in love with her which is why it seemed like she took her death harder than most. Liyah got around but really it was her parents that let her get into everything from such a young age.

If Lolita Price from Youtube isn't playing Aaliyah, I will not be supporting that shit. Fuck a Keshia Chante and Bria. Lolita Price all day, every fucking day and the chick is actually a singer,model and actress.

Anonymous said...

^^^^ Yesssssssssssss LOLITA PRICE. That woman is Aaliyah's long lost twin. Google that girl. It's chilling with the resemblance.

Just find someone who FUCKED every man she came in contact with, Aaliyah was a whore!

@ 6:34PM Then you should be perfect for the role, whore! Have your people get at my people about the casting.

1:30 is CLEARLY snitch and her clit-riding Rhianna ass.

Anonymous said...

I can't believe there is enough interesting stuff about her to make a bio anything. She was an all right singer back in the day. Not much of a voice at all but decent production. She was an awful actress Exactly what would it be about. The most interesting part would be the plan crash.. RIP and surely no offense, but I have never, ever understood NY'ers obsession with this girl. She was cute with little talent and that is about it. I don't get it.

Sorry I should have proofed that before I sent it

I the ink the fascination Alliyah has more to do with what could have become of her had she not had an untimely death. At the time she died she was blowing up and becoming a household name. Her acting wasn't great and her voice wasn't either, buy neither was Marilyn Monroe, right? I am gen x'er and not a fan, but I can relate to the people that loved her and wanted her to conquer Hollywood.

KenyaDoll said...

Aliyah looked so beautiful in that picture. That is my favorite picture of Aaliyah. And Bria Murphy is an adorable girl.

But they need to axe the entire biopic idea. Leave that shit alone.

Anonymous said...

1:49...LOL...I'm done.

No need for a biopic especially if it turns out as bad as NOTORIOUS. That was the biggest flop in the history of anything. No reality to it at all. Anyway, there will never be any female that anyone will think is a good fit.

Anonymous said...

I'll admit, I loved Aaliyah when I was a kid. I used to tear out her pictures in the various magazines at the supermarket and steal them lol, but yeah I feel like Aaliyah was just the everyday girl. She was never involved in any scandals and controversy. Her sex life wasn't put on blast either (aside from marrying the pied pisser pedo) and we all know sex (and if unavailable then drama) sells. I don't see how making a biopic of her life would even be that interesting unless they go the Wendy Williams/gutter route and REALLY get down and dirty (which we know Aaliyah's family won't).

Anonymous said...

Why does she need a biopic? She was never on the level of a Whitney Houston or the other great past and present R&B singers. None of her music will go down as classic tunes.

I can't believe all these ugly disgusting things that people are saying...I wonder when ur dead and gone what will people say??? I'll say it while u are breathing..ur a whore, a dick...etc everything else.

Anonymous said...

@10:29 PM I agree calling her out of her name i.e. whore, is disrespectful, rude and unnecessary, but my saying she was a mediocre singer at best and a horrible actress is NOT disgusting or ugly at all. It's just me evaluating an Artist's talents.

Sabi does look like her, she'd be perfect if she can act. I'd definitely love to watch an aaliyah biopic.

Did somebody actually mention that bleached linebacker looking beyawnsay?? Gawd no

Missy Jones said...

I think Cassie favors her a lot. I hope they get someone with her calm demeanor and natural beauty.

I think ashanti could also do her justice if she were willing to lose some of her sexy thickness for the role as aaliyah had a waif-like figure.

Anonymous said...

There's no need aaliyah was a private person and i know for a fact she wouldn't want that. Sh!t let them do the movie and i hope production goes all wrong cuz she haunted the set!

Unknown said...

I think a person who can sing, Jordan Sparks or Lisa Tucker she was on American Idol. She look just like Aaliyah...

CONFIRMED BY CENTRIC AND BET

Anonymous said...

Ooops not confirmed they got the story from here. Aaliyahs brother said he knows nothing, a lot of actors have been sending in their audition tapes, people say its her Uncle who is trying to get this film picked up by vh1 if her immediate fam does not stop it like they want. The casting director took down the tweet and Tiffan Evans has also been trying to rally her fans up to get her the part she took down her aaliyah ig post too. A lot of back tracking going on. Whether she auditioned or not, hollywood has their hands in something...

Anonymous said...

Thats crazy as fuck that people honestly believe Aaliyah fucked Jay Z they were friends.....niggas act like they dont have homies...that look good u might want to fuck but u treat them with respect cuz u see they respect themselves. Aaliyah had respect for herself. Yea her and R.kelly got it poppin but she was married, what people forget is how spiritual she was, and how driven she was.married at any age is an accomplishment these days alot of these hoes fucking at 12 no ring no respect no love.
She was 22 and a apart of generation that died when she died, if we somehow create the technology to bring her back restoee the life that was took, she wake up to a world of technology and social media that didnt really exists when she was alive. AALIYAH WAS LEGENDARY because her beauty echoed. She was geniune , and partied, fought, loved, like any other person. I was at her funeral, and the only thing to be felt was her death marked the beginning of an end. Love died, compassion with it. Noone gives a fuck. Noone cares September 11th was 2 weeks after Aaliyah's funeral....

Interesting blog. Here you have given the biopic of the aaliyah who is the princess of the R&B. Thanks for giving such a piece of valuable information. Along with this article, I would like to share about the hamster pets which were established as popular small house pets.
