Hunt Begins For Actress To Play Amy Winehouse
Sources claim a biopic about her life could soon be hitting the big screen...
Reports have suggested that the search has begun to find an actress to play the lateAmy Winehousein a movie about her life.
The Sun claims that TV stations have asked the Back To Black singer's family for consent to make the biopic, with a source close to the Winehouse's telling the tabloid: "The feeling is there wouldn't be an actress under 30 who wouldn't want to play her."
"The first job is to get financial backing from co-production companies in the States. Some are showing interest because it's a sure-fire money-spinner."
The insider continued: "They know anything Amy-related is going to be a huge success."
Previous allegations have suggested that eccentric diva Lady GaGa has been approached to portray Amy, with the Daily Star reporting that she is considering the role.
A mole told the newspaper: "Lady GaGa worshipped Amy and would love nothing more than to transform herself into her idol on the big screen."
They added: "She'd be spot on performing Amy's songs and has got the right look and bolshy attitude. GaGa's management team had been discussing possible film ventures before Amy's untimely death. But there's only ever been one role she wants and that's to play Amy."
The Poker Face star has previously expressed her sadness over Winehouse's death last month, stating that the 27-year old "changed pop music forever."
