The famous movie director said he’s going to use 90 minutes of unreleased footage from the movie to pull it off.  The Django Unchained miniseries will consist of four hour-long chapters.

Though Tarantino did’nt reveal any premiere dates or which network is going to air his new project, he kinda sujested that he may release all the episodes at once saying, “It would be a mini-series and people love those. You show people a four-hour movie and they roll their eyes. Show people a four-part mini-series and they’ll sit and watch it all in one sitting.”

Finally, it been a decade since Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown's relationship was put on TV for the world to see in the Bravo reality series Being Bobby Brown.  According to reports by Deadline, their story is returning to television, but not as a new series…a Lifetime channel movie.  

The title for the project is Whitney Houston and interestingly enough iconic actress Angela Bassett will be directing it.  If reports are accurate, the movie will cover the time the two singers met, through Houston’s run as one of the most successful entertainers in history.

No word on whether Angela Bassett will play Whitney, but it would be now surprise.  After all she’s is no stranger to biopics, she’s starred in several throughout the years from playing the role of Tina Turner in What’s Love Got to Do with It to Betty Shabazz in Malcolm X and more.  Bassett said of her new project, “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.”
