Alexandra Shipp will Play Aaliyah for Wendy Williams

Lifetime's Aaliyah biopic TV movie was halted last month due to the exit of Zendaya Coleman who was to play the main lead role of the R&B singer Aaliyah. Lifetime made the announcement of Zendaya's exit in a statement posted on its Twitter account on June 29th.

However, Lifetime has become successful in tapping another star. Nickelodeon actress Alexandra Shipp will now play the role of Aaliyah. And the decision was taken after Wendy Williams was taken on board as executive producer of the Aaliyah biopic.

Wendy Williams made both the announcement of her becoming exec producer and Alexandra Shipp playing Aaliyah yesterday on her twitter account. She posted the following tweet on Friday.

Zendaya Coleman has already recorded four songs for the TV movie that will appear in it. Alexandra Shipp will do the rest of the work in the Lifetime TV movie. Shipp is known for her work in Nickelodeon's House of Anubis. She also worked in episodes of Switched at Birth, Awkward and Ray Donovan.

Aaliyah: Princess of R&B is the title of the TV movie, the shooting of which will resume this summer. And this biopic is planned for release this fall. 

The script of this biopic is based on Christopher Farley's book 'Aaliyah: More Than a Woman'. Aaliyah was a hit singer of the 90s. Her songs remained on the top of charts from 1994 till her death in 2001. She died at the age of 22.

Aaliyah Productions Inc. is producing the biopic of the late singer with The Informant's Howard Braunstein and the The Princess Diaries' Debra Martin Chase as executive producers. Bradley Walsh, famous for his work in Turn the Beat Around, is directing the TV movie while Michael Elliot is writing the script.
