Disney star Zendaya Coleman has dropped out of Limetime's planned Aaliyah biopic, and production on the film has ground to a halt. With a public outcry from Aaliyah fans against the film, and legal troubles obstructing Lifetime from securing the rights to the late singer's music, it looks like we may not get that Aaliyah biopic for some time, if ever.

That being said, if you really need your fix of tragic biopics that follow the rise and fall of talented musicians' lives, you don't have to wait until August 1 for the James Brown film Get On Up to hit theaters. Just check out one of these amazing films.
