Search for the new Amy Winehouse for film biopic?
It has only been a matter of weeks since the sudden and untimely death of iconic Amy Winehouse, and yet the hunt is already on to find a suitable actress to portray her in a film about her life.
TV producers have apparently been in touch with the singer’s family to seek consent to make a biopic feature based on Amy’s tumultuous life story.
Amy was always very big news, but never more so since she was discovered dead in her Camden flat last month, and while people are still grieving for her tragic loss, the realism is that her story is huge and can create a lot of interest and revenue.
According to a family source:
The feeling is there wouldn’t be an actress under 30 who wouldn’t want to play her.
The first job is to get financial backing from co-production companies in the States. Some are showing interest because it’s a sure-fire money-spinner.
They know anything Amy-related is going to be a huge success.
With such a huge project a foot, the main pressure will be placed on whoever gets chosen to portray Amy, who’s image was not only particular, but world widely iconic.
