As plans for the Whitney Houston biopic continue to develop, fans have already gotten exciting updates about what the film will have to offer. And now, there's even more!

On the heels of a photo released last week that gave a first look at Yaya DaCosta done up as the late-singer, comes news that singer Deborah Cox is set to lay down the vocals.

The film, which will focus on the renowned singer's relationship with her ex-husband Bobby Brown, will be directed by Angela Bassett and is set to premiere in 2015. Houston's family has had no involvement in the making of the movie, and her daughter Bobbi Kristina's has openly criticized the production.
