Our Gadi Elkon talked with Executive Producer Tanner Beard about the upcoming biopic, I WANNA DANCE WITH SOMEBODY.
Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance With Somebody is a powerful and triumphant celebration of the incomparable Whitney Houston. Directed by Kasi Lemmons, written by Academy Award® nominee Anthony McCarten, produced by legendary music executive Clive Davis and starring BAFTA Award® winner Naomi Ackie, the film is a no-holds-barred portrait of the complex and multifaceted woman behind The Voice. From New Jersey choir girl to one of the best-selling and most awarded recording artists of all time, audiences are taken on an inspirational, poignant—and so emotional—journey through Houston’s trailblazing life and career, with show-stopping performances and a soundtrack of the icon’s most beloved hits as you’ve never heard them before. Don’t you wanna dance?
In their chat Tanner and Gadi talked about indie filmmaking, the festival circuit, his co-founding and running of MAMMOTH FILM FESTIVAL, and of course I WANNA DANCE WITH SOMEBODY.
