Augusta, GA -
We have a correction to make. Each Wednesday, we prepare a segment called Hollywood Minute. In this Wednesday's segment, we reported that Jaden Smith had been cast in film about the George Zimmerman, Trayvon Martin case. We did not realize that information was taken from a satirical website and is, in fact, false. WJBF regrets the error.

However, there are reports that Whitney's family is upset about this movie saying that Whitney Houston deserves a movie on the big screen. Whitney's daughter, Bobbi Krisitna, is also reported saying she's upset because she feels that she should be portraying her mother in this movie. The movie is set to premiere on Lifetime in 2015.
