Sony Pictures has released an official trailer for I Wanna Dance with Somebody, an upcoming biographical musical drama film based on the life of American pop icon Whitney Houston. Let’s take a look.

I might have to give this shot. I’m all for a good biopic.

I Wanna Dance with Somebody stars Naomi Ackie as Whitney Houston and Stanley Tucci as her former record producer Clive Davis. Ashton Sanders, Tamara Tunie, Nafessa Williams, and Clarke Peters also star in supporting roles.
