Letoya Luckett to Play Dionne Warwick in Upcoming Biopic

Former Destiny’s Child member Letoya Luckett, is set to play legendary R&B singer Dionne Warwick in her new biopic! Warwick announced the project at Cannes festival stating:

“She is perfect and she has exactly the right look. She will bring out what is needed for this part.”

The five-time Grammy winning singer hinted that a number of famous faces may feature in the film saying “There’ll be a lot of surprises.”

Although initial reports claimed Lady Gaga, will be playing British singer Cilla Black known for being Warwick’s musical nemesis. Reps for Lady Gaga responded to the rumours by stating “She is not attached and will not appear in this project."

Luckett, 35, will portray a younger Dionne and record several of the superstar’s hits for the soundtrack. The film titled ‘Dionne’ will focus on her career around 1962 to 1968, during this time period she crafted some of her most memorable tracks, including “I say a little prayer.”

Filming will commence later this year.
