London: After news that pop star Lady Gaga wants to essay the role of late singer Amy Winehouse in the latter`s biopic, the grapevine is abuzz that a hunt is on for a suitable actress for the project.
TV channels have been in touch with the late star`s family, demanding a consent to make a bio-series about her, reports thesun.co.uk.
"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," said a source from Winehouse`s family.
Winehouse 27, was found dead in her home in Camden July 23 after a long battle with drugs and alcohol.
