According to Perez Hilton,
Canadian-born R&B singer Keisha Chante has been tapped to portray the late Aaliyah in a biopic recounting the life and untimely death of the hip-hop and R&B artist.

The film is scheduled for release next year.

Although Chante's acting resume is a short one, she has starred in a number of independent flicks and boasts a 2006 R&B album out called 2U with another on the way.

Sources say she was selected for her striking resemblance to the multi Grammy-nominated Aaliyah.
Hmmm.. Interesting. I wondered how long would it take for a movie to be made about Aaliyah. It should be interesting; but ONLY if they tell the real story about her, and the R. Kelly situation. I mean, other than that, I don't know what her movie could be about. She stayed out of the tabloids -for the most part- and she was pretty much a good girl. But maybe there was a side we didn't know??? Keisha eerily looks like her and I also always thought that if an Aaliyah movie should be made, Chante should play her.  I've never seen her act, though. hmmm... Let's see if the movie will be named after one of her songs. I'm thinking "One In A Million"??

Damn she does look just like her. I can't wait for this one. I don't know about the Biggie movie though.
