There are already rumours in Hollywood of a possible biopic of the late singer Amy Winehouse’s tragic life, and reports say that Lady Gaga is in secret talks to play the role.
The movie moguls, who want to capitalise on the global outburst of grief following Winehouse’s death, are of the opinion that the outrageous pop phenomenon would be perfect in the starring role.
“Lady Gaga worshipped Amy and would love nothing more than to transform herself into her idol on the big screen,” the Daily Star quoted a Hollywood insider as saying.
“She’d be spot on performing Amy’s songs and has got the right look and bolshy attitude.
“Gaga’s been itching to make the transition from music into movies and sees this as the ideal role to launch her film career,” the insider added.
Though Gaga has been flooded with film offers recently, according to reports, the only one role she wants to play is that of Winehouse.
