London: ‘Fatal Attraction’ star Glenn Close is reportedly set to play Susan Boyle in the biopic of the spinster’s life.

Glenn said ‘aye’ to film bosses this week and is about to start work on her SuBo shuffle and catchphrase ‘bloody fantastic’, reports a news daily.

A source said: “The film is full steam ahead now the leading role is sorted. It was always going to be a tricky one to cast.

“SuBo`s incredible story is so well-known across the planet that the film is bound to go down a storm.

“Glenn has played some imposing women in the past including Cruella de Vil and Alex Forrest, who boils the pet rabbit in Fatal Attraction.

“But Subo might just be her biggest role yet.”

Glenn has been nominated five times for an Oscar, won three Emmys and has picked up two Golden Globes.
