Angela Bassett is set to direct a Whitney Houston biopic which will be released in 2015.

The 55-year-old Olympus Has Fallen actress will make her directorial debut on the movie which will follow the late star's turbulent relationship with her husband Bobby Brown, who she separated from in 2006 before their divorce was finalised in 2007, according to E! Online.

In a recent statement, Bassett said: ''I have such regard for both Whitney's and Bobby's amazing talents and accomplishments, and I feel a responsibility in the telling of their story. Their humanity and bond fascinates us all. I'm beyond excited to have this opportunity to go behind the camera and into their world.''

The movie is currently using the working title Whitney Houston and cast details are yet to be revealed.
