It's been announced that a new Aaliyah biopic, tentatively titled 'Aaliyah: Princess of R&B' is in the works.

The film will be based on Christopher Farley's best-selling autobiography 'Aaliyah: More Than A Woman' and air on Lifetime.

17-year-old Zendaya tweeted about her excitement at being cast to play "one of [her] biggest inspirations."
