Hunt is on for actress to play Amy Winehouse in film
London: Late singer Amy Winehouse’s real life is soon going to be turned into reel life, and the hunt for an actress who will play her in the movie, is on.
TV stations have approached Winehouse’s family to get permission to make a bio-series about her.
“The feeling is there wouldn’t be an under 30 who wouldn’t want to play her,” the Sun quoted a family source as saying.
“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,” the source added.
The late singer, who died aged 27, had various looks and an incredible vocal talent, so the actress who will play her will have a tough job getting it right.
