As fans long know, Canadian cutie Keshia Chante has long been pegged to be the forerunner of applicants attempting to play the late Aaliyah in a biopic. With an uncanny resemblance to the ‘Rock the Boat’ beauty, many long thought she was a shoo in.
But (per her own update), despite no official offer for the role, the excitement for any new projects related to Baby Girl is at an all-time high with news of Chante’s ex – rapper Drake – reportedly producing a record of unreleased Aaliyah material.
Adding more spice to the broth are the recently unveiled snaps of Chante tributing the late songstress in a moving set of photos. If any movie producer needs any convincing, these pics just might do the trick:
Hott!! Here’s hoping the Aaliyah film is definitely one that comes into fruition. It would certainly bring to life many-an-Aaliyah fan’s dream of new music, movie if it could happen in one year. And given the wonders ‘Selena’ did for a then-little known Jennifer Lopez, who knows how much of a catalyst this could be to restart Chante’s stalled music career.
Once said to be directed by ‘Dreamgirls’ director Bill Condon, find out what Chante had to say about the latest on the project here.
