The Aaliyah Biopic is still in production. I know what you are thinking. Shouldn’t they be finished already? Well I am assuming the movie without the music and other restrictions is making the movie a little dry. So they have cast Elise Neal to play Gladys Knight. Gladys Knight? Well apparently Aaliyah’s uncle Barry Hankerson married Gladys back in the 70’s. The married did not last, but the word is that Galdys having ties to Aaliyah helped her career out. I don’t know, to me that is a major stretch. All of these years I never heard the words Gladys Knight and Aaliyah in the same sentence until now. I guess they are running out of ideas. Seems like this story is going to be all over the place.
Do you think they needed to mention Gladys in this film?
