London: Britain’s Got Talent star Susan Boyle has revealed that her rise to fame is being made into a major biopic.
Boyle, 51, said that she would like British legend Julie Walters to play her in the movie.
“My story will make a great film. We are in the middle of negotiations just now for a film about my life,” the Mirror quoted her as saying.
“There’s only one person I’d love to play me – and that’s Julie Walters. She would do the job and you just know she would do my story justice.
“The success I’ve had is surreal and unbelievable. I never expected to be able to do a tenth of what I’ve done. But now I’ve done it I just want to do everything and take every opportunity that comes my way,” she said.
Boyle is still stunned by the public’s response to her.
“When I signed the recording contract originally I had no idea what I was doing, to be honest. I just signed papers and started singing,” she said.
“I had no idea how far I would go. I just walked into Sony after the show and said I’d enjoy the process while it lasts. And now there will be a film of my life. It’s truly amazing,” she added.
It’s less than four years since Boyle came second to dance troupe Diversity on Britain’s Got Talent and since then she’s sold more than 18 million albums worldwide and is said to be worth 30 million pounds.
