Arrived at 80 years old, Dionne Warwick said to herself that it would be time to devote a biopic to her. Suddenly, the interpreter of I Say A Little Prayer decided to force fate, calling Netflix to get to work in a video posted on Twitter. And the icon sees only one actress worthy of playing her on-screen.

"Don't ask me who I would choose to play my part because it would obviously be Teyana Taylor," she wrote in her post.

For her part, Teyana Taylor was honored by Dionne Warwick's call, responding to her post with a round of applause emojis and Netflix also responded.

The platform said "take notes" of the proposal. But in reality, this is not the first time that such a project has been mentioned.


Indeed, the idea of a biopic dedicated to Dionne Warwick has already circulated on the networks, as well as its obvious resemblance to Teyana Taylor. Queer Eye star Karamo Brown said in a tweet: "Seriously, a channel should do a biopic on Dionne Warwick and take Teyana Taylor to play her."

So if everyone agrees, there is no reason why it should not happen!
