Originally, Zendaya was casted to play the Princess of R&B, Aaliyah, in the Lifetime movie based on the biography “Aaliyah: More Than a Woman,” but Gossip Cop reported that she dropped out in June. The film will depict the 22-year-old singer’s life and tragic death from a plane crash in 2001. So who will play Aaliyah? One of the executive producers, Wendy Williams, tweeted on Friday, “I’m excited to exec produce the Aaliyah @lifetimetv movie w/ @DebraMChase. Prod starts later this month and @AlexShipppp will play Aaliyah,” she wrote. The up and coming star is known for her role on a Nickelodeon show called, “House of Anubis.” I was excited to see how Zendaya would portray the part, but I’m sure Alex will kill it! The movie is said to come out in the fall, and I can’t wait!
