Meagan Good has never been shy about expressing her interest in portraying Whitney Houston in a biopic. And now that the pop icon has passed, Good reveals that the project was already in the works.

“We were fairly in the beginning stages,” she tells E! Online, adding that she was meant to have a meeting with Houston this week to discuss the project.

In previous meetings, the two had discussed how the biopic would end. Adds Good, “My feeling is because she has the film Sparkle coming out and she’s brilliant in it and she looks beautiful and healthy, my feeling was that’s how we should end the movie — as a new beginning for her.”

The actress added that it’s too soon to worry about whether the film will be made, then shared her fondness of the late singer. “For anybody spending time around Whitney, she’s so much fun,” says Good. “She’s got a sassy attitude and is very funny and funky. She’s definitely a fun person to be around.”
