Amy Winehouse's father Mitch has revealed he's not interested in a Hollywood biopic being made about his late daughter.
Mitch Winehouse made the admission last night (November 20) at the annual Amy Winehouse Foundation Ball, held at the Dorchester Hotel in London.
Speaking to Digital Spy about the difficulties he's faced finding the right way to pay tribute to the singer, Mitch revealed: "I don't really want to do a biopic, but there's a documentary film from the same people who did Senna coming out next year."
He continued: "A concert would be amazing, but it's actually getting it together with the [record label]. It sounds great in theory, but in practice it's not so easy. We are talking about it though."
Mitch also thanked the "host of wonderful people" who had turned out to support the cause, including Pixie Lott, Boy George and Amy's good friend and producer Mark Ronson.
He said: "I'm emotional, but happy to be here and grateful for everyone who's come to support us."
"It's just wonderful. Amy should be here, but under the circumstances I'm happy."
Grammy Award-winner Amy Winehouse died in July 2011 at the age of 27 as a result of alcohol poisoning.
