Dionne Warwick would like Teyana Taylor to play her in a biopic she casually pitched to Netflix, and it’s likely because the singer looks like her long lost granddaughter.

After asking people if they would be interested in a movie about her life, the legendary singer and new queen of Twitter emphatically stated, “Please don’t ask who I would cast to play me as it would obviously be @TEYANATAYLOR.”

Taylor was absolutely, positively for it, responding to Warwick with, “When the LEGENDARY @therealdionnew had this moment w/ @netflix & they started jotting notes in their palm pilots…I was lookin at them likeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.”

We’d love to see the biopic with Taylor happen, and after digging through the photo crates, we need it to happen based on the similarities in their appearance alone. Check out photos of the two women from over the years where they held their mouths, their gazes and their entire faces the same way. If you’d like to go down a rabbit hole to see ways in which Dionne Warwick and Teyana Taylor look eerily similar, we’ve got you covered.

The women, pictured here more than 40 years apart, in England and in Houston, have a similar look in these images.

As for this biopic, word on the curb is that Taylor and Warwick discussed the movie idea over the phone after Warwick’s tweets and both were down for it.

A young Taylor and Warwick’s cheekbones were popping in these pictures, and they held their lips the same.

“Our sources tell us Dionne reached out to Karen Civil, a member of Teyana’s team, and Karen connected them by phone,” per TMZ. “We’re told DW and TT spoke for a while about Dionne’s biographical series ideas, and Teyana expressed her desire to play the part.”

It’s also reported that Netflix is interested in working with Warwick on an actual series as opposed to just a movie. Her family is reportedly trying to iron things out.

This opportunity for Taylor comes as she was just considering retiring, at least from music. That’s what she said in early December.

“I’m retiring this chapter of my story with the comfort that I can depart with peace of mind seeing that all the hard work & passion put in was indeed loved & supported somewhere in the world!”

As for Warwick, we told you that she loves herself some Twitter these days.

“Well hello. And this is for all of you Tweeters, who have decided that I’m not tweeting my own stuff to you,” she said in a video earlier this month. “I want you to know I am, and I’m getting very, very, very good at it.”

Her niece, Brittani Warwick, the one who encouraged her to get on Twitter, told Harper’s Bazaar the family finds it hilarious that she’s found so much fame on the social media app.

“Everybody thinks it’s hilarious. I mean, we already knew that she was so funny. We would call her a comedian and tell her that she’s in the wrong business. Once she got integrated with Twitter, now that’s all my family will watch, because we were like, ‘Oh, my gosh, what is she going to say today? Is she going to clap-back at somebody? What is she going to do?’ She’s very unpredictable as well—which, again, makes Twitter the perfect place for her.”

As we said, we’re hopeful that this biopic, or biographical series, will take place. We’re trying to see Taylor perform “Walk on By” in a ’60s-inspired wig, chile. Something, among many things, to look forward to in the new year. Fingers crossed!
