Lifetime has announced that Disney star Zendaya will portray the late R&B singer Aaliyah in her television biopic.

The movie will chronicle the life of the ‘Try Again‘ singer who died tragically in plane crash at the age of 22 back in 2001.

The film which which is called ‘Aaliyah: Princess of R&B’ is based on the biography ‘More Than a Woman‘ and will be produced by Aaliyah Productions, Inc.

Zendaya who is best known for her work on the Disney series ‘Shake It Up‘ finished second on the sixteenth series of ‘Dancing with the Stars‘ last year.

She released her self-titled debut album last year via Hollywood Records, which is home to many other teen singers including Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato and formally Miley Cyrus.

Zendaya soon took to Twitter to share numerous tweets about her casting,

‘She’s been an inspiration and influence in my whole career, her talent still shines brighter then ever, all I wanna do is honour her’

‘Show how much she accomplished in only 22 years….she’s beautiful inside and there will never be another Aaliyah, I just hope to share her’

‘Beautiful story, and make her proud up in heaven

‘I’m just a 17 year old girl who got cast to play one of her biggest inspirations

The official announcement is to be made in a couple of days, whilst filming is believed to commence in a couple of weeks.

The film comes after the success of the TLC movie last year on VH1 and weeks after the Whitney Houston biopic was confirmed to be in production.
