Just days after Whitney Houston's funeral, the rumor mill is buzzing about a biopic chronicling the late singer's life.

The Daily Mail reports that Clive Davis will helm the project, while Jennifer Hudson, Vivica Fox and Jordin Sparks are on the short list to play Houston, with Rihanna thought to be the favorite.

But another star may have her eye on the role: Brandy Norwood, Houston's co-star in the 1997 adaptation of "Cinderella."

"My dream role would be to play Whitney Houston," Brandy told TrueExclusives only weeks before Houston's passing. "Of course she would have to sing all the songs. But I would love to play Ms. Whitney. I have her personality down pat, her 'isms' down pat. Like no offense ladies -- it's a lot of talented ladies there -- but nobody can play Whitney like me. Yes!"

Do you think Rihanna is right for the role of Houston? Or should the part go to Brandy? Let us know in the comments.
