Destiny's Child Alum LeToya Luckett to Star in Dionne Warwick Biopic

We said a little prayer and it has been answered: A Dionne Warwick biopic is in the works, and it's got a great cast to boot.

LeToya Luckett—an original member of Destiny's Child who's released two albums to date and boasts a a fruitful TV and movie career—will play the legendary singer, as announced by Warwick herself at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, per The Hollywood Reporter.

At the announcement event for the biopic, titled DionneLady Gaga, Olympia Dukakis and Danny Glover were all announced as cast members in the film. Though, immediately after the event, Gaga's reps sent out a statement saying she was not involved with the project. Dukakis will play Marlene Dietrich (who mentored Warwick at the start of her career), with Glover playing the singer's father.
