We’re not yet sure if this is true or not, but word on the street is that model/singer Cassie Ventura is among the front-runners to portray deceased music icon Aaliyah in an upcoming biopic (as yet untitled), set for a 2014 release.
The songstress can dance, and has already had some major film on-set experience thanks to her role on 2008’s Step Up 2. This also wouldn’t be the first time her name would appear associated with the R&B icon as comparisons between the two have been made ever since Cassie stepped on to the music scene with her smash hit “Me & U” back in 2006.
Plus, this past week another rumor that had the Internet buzzing– regarding the starlet, born in New London, CT,– is that she recently inked a deal with rapper Drake‘s Toronto-based record label OVO and had been spotted in the recording studio with none other than legendary producer Timbaland, according to AceShowbiz.
Could all these projects end up being related? Plus, while it appears like she has many great things lined up in the near future, Cassie’s long term boyfriend Diddy is finally readying the launch of his big music network REVOLT this Fall!
