CONFIRMED: Teyana Taylor Will Star as Dionne Warwick In Biopic

There are many people that just favor each other so strongly that it’s a little scary, almost like people have body doubles. When it comes to celebrities, whenever someone younger gives a striking resemblance to an older legend the rumors for a biopic begin to stir, whether they match in talent or not. This time around, the rumors ended up building into something true, Dionne Warwick has confirmed that Teyana Taylor will be playing her for an upcoming biopic.


Warwick has been playing with the younger generation on Twitter since starting up her account, but this one was no joke. After tweeting stating that Teyana Taylor is who she would want to portray her she has now confirmed the news. During an interview with Entertainment Weekly Warwick stated “It’s going to be a series, we’re planning to do an episodic type of a show...[Teyana] is certainly a talented young lady with whom I’ve had the pleasure of interfacing. In fact, we had a conversation last night on the telephone. She’s very excited about the prospect of being involved and she’s also going to be very, very much involved in directing it and putting together parts and parcels of how we see this going.” Warwick has been looking for streaming giant, Netflix to pick up the show although she doesn't plan to put all her eggs in one basket. “They’re not the only place that we’re looking at but Netflix seems to be the leading episodic [platform] to do something similar to what I want to do. There’s a lot of very exciting stuff going on right now!”

Teyana Taylor has recently announced her retirement from music following the release of her latest album, and commented on the new partnership on Instagram. “When the LEGENDARY @therealdionnew had this moment w/ @netflix & they started jotting notes in their palm pilots…I was looking at them likeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee…..P.S. One thing about them doors…..They open.”

There is no official release or filming date that has been publicized but I’m sure we’ll all be watching for updates.
