London: Pop star Katy Perry is in line for a role in a biopic of opera singer Paul Potts.

The 27-year-old discussed the project with producer Harvey Weinstein at his pre-Oscars party last weekend.

She will reportedly play the wife of Potts, who won the first series of singing reality show "Britain`s Got Talent" in 2007.

"I was talking to Katy about a new project, a possible dramatic role in the Paul Potts movie, which will be shooting in England soon. We`d really like someone like Katy or Adele to play the role of Potts` wife, and Katy seemed genuinely interested," contactmusic.com quoted Weinstein as saying.
