Whitney's Final Movie

Preemptive Strike

to Prevent Leak

2/27/2012 10:20 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

0220_whitney_EX_01
Whitney Houston's final movie is on lockdown ... over fears that people will leak Whitney's scenes and music ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the production tell us ... the people working on "Sparkle" -- starring Whitney and Jordin Sparks -- are working "around the clock" to finish post-production work on the movie as quickly as possible.

We're told the building where the film is being edited is also under tight watch -- with ramped up security in the hopes of preemptively clogging a leak.

So far, no comment from Sony.

"spoiling the flick for everyone" ? that is their fear? Please they 'fear' people won't care in a few months. Strike while she's still warm in the grave so fans will flock to see it. It's all about the money and maximizing the movie using her death as a promo tool.

It's so sad that no one can find a photo of Whitney Houston in the last five years, where she isn't completely wasted!

Ok. She passed what, 2-3 weeks ago. Stop talking about her. She died. Funeral's over. That's the end of it. I can't speak for everyone, but I know I'm sick and tired of hearing about Whitney Houston. Yes, it was interesting several days after, but now WEEKS after.

We idolized and memorialized Whitney Houston, yet looked the other way concerning her well-known substance abuse and tumultuous life with singer Bobby Brown.
Charlie Sheen is 45 and his story is all over the news because he is a
substance abuser, an adulterer, sexually promiscuous and obnoxious.

Lindsay Lohan is 24 and her story is all over the news because she is a
celebrity drug addict and thief.

Something as frivolous as Kim Kardashian's stupid wedding (and
short-lived marriage) was shoved down our throats, while........

Justin Allen 23
Brett Linley 29
Matthew Weikert 29
Justus Bartett 27
Dave Santos 21
Jesse Reed 26
Matthew Johnson 21
Zachary Fisher 24
Brandon King 23
Christopher Goeke 23
and Sheldon Tate 27...

...are all Marines who gave their lives last month for you. There is no
media for them; not even a mention of their names.
They were young men who most likely came from rural America seeking a chance
to better themselves and to serve this country.
