The tragic life and times of the late, great Amy Winehouse have been recounted already in an award-winning 2015 documentary called Amy.
But her father Mitch Winehouse has just announced the family has inked a deal to have a scripted feature film based on her life come to the big screen.
Rumors have already started circulating that Lady Gaga is in talks to star, but Mitch tells The Sun:
"It wouldn’t be Lady Gaga. She doesn’t speak our kind of English. I wouldn’t mind betting it would be an unknown, young, English — London, Cockney — actress who looks a bit like Amy."
Adding: "What we want is somebody to portray Amy in the way that she was … the funny, brilliant, charming and horrible person that she was."
The movie is expected to shoot in 2019.
