Gangsta Lovin'

Whitney, Bobby hope to film a gangster movie. The two are planning to shoot a musical called ''Beffy and Charlie,'' according to People

Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown hope to put their notoriety to good use in their first joint movie project, according to People. The pair is planning to make a movie called ''Beffy and Charlie'' in which they'll portray a talented pair of criminals. ''We're going to be singing, robbing, stealing -- a lot of things people might not want to see us do,'' Brown told People, without specifiying a studio, screenwriter, or director for the project.

The former New Edition member has actually appeared in at least eight previous movies, including the upcoming ''Nora's Hair Salon,'' which co-stars Tatyana Ali. Houston, whose most famous film role was opposite Kevin Costner in 1992's ''The Bodyguard,'' hasn't appeared in a movie since 1996's ''The Preacher's Wife.'' As for ''Beffy and Charlie'' -- Brown told People it'll be ''special.'' Hey, with both robbing AND stealing involved, we wouldn't expect anything less.
