Los Angeles: The family of the late R&B singer Aaliyah have reportedly vowed to stop production on an upcoming Lifetime biopic.
Aaliyah`s family are angry that the network did not contact them about the film, suggest reports.
The family are said to have hired a lawyer to fight production of the TV movie that is slated to begin shooting this summer.
Disney actress Zendaya is to play the role of Aaliyah.
R&B singer Aaliyah died in a plane crash at the age of just 22 years old in 2001.
The biopic is slated to explore the performer`s rise to stardom.
A posthumous Aaliyah tribute album was put on hold back in January after Drake producer and collaborator Noah `40` Shebib left the project behind.
