Late British star Jade Goody's life is reportedly being adapted for a film tentatively titled Catch a Falling Star which will detail her poverty-ridden childhood and struggle with cancer.
Goody, 27, died on Sunday after a seven-month long battle with cervical cancer and now the trustees of her estate are planning to put together proposals for a biographical film on her.
Danny Hayward, a friend of Goody and one of three trustees of a fund set up to provide for her two children, Bobby, 5, and Freddie, 4, said a film on Goody's life was being discussed, The Times online reported.
"Her story lends itself to a biographical film. She's captured the mood of the nation. We're talking about it, and we welcome approaches. We want it to tap into raising awareness of cervical cancer," Hayward said.
Goody's family is said to be keen on approaching The Football Factory director Nick Love to take up the project.
Love is 'very flattered' about the suggestion but his involvement in the project would depend on his work schedule, the newspaper quoted a source from his company, Vertigo Films as saying.
