Mitch Backs GaGa For Amy Winehouse Movie
Father of tragic singer tips Lady GaGa for the lead role...
Mitch Winehouse believes Lady GaGa would be perfect for the lead role in a biopic of his daughter's life.
Rumours of a movie about Amy's rise to fame and tragic demise have been swirling since her death.
Just last week, British director Reg Traviss revealed he had been approached with regards to a film about his girlfriend.
As Reg pointed out, anyone wishing to take on the project would need the approval of the Winehouse family, and if Mitch has his way GaGa will take the lead.
Speaking to The Sunday Mirror, the former cabbie said: "I have heard that Lady GaGa is keen to play Amy in a film.
"I don't know what her English accent is like but it's not just an English accent she would have to perfect - it's an English-Cockney-Jewish accent so she better start practising now. But she would be great."
Whether or not GaGa can pull off the accent, she'd surely have a fairly good stab at the singing.
