Is Lady Gaga Playing Amy Winehouse in Her Upcoming Biopic?

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.
