You may have heard the rumor by now about [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Lady Gaga[/lastfm] currently discussing the logistics of her portraying the late [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Amy Winehouse[/lastfm] in a film about her short but fun-filled life.
Although it’s juicy, a rumor is all it is at this point, little monsters.
The U.K.’s Daily Star is reporting that Gaga is in secret talks to play Amy Winehouse in an upcoming film.
This seems like it could be true, being that the death of the modern soul singer has movie studios and greedy execs foaming at the mouth to capitalize on Amy’s story while people still remember her… and producers think Gaga would be perfect in the starring role.
According to the Daily Star, a “Hollywood insider” said: “Lady GaGa worshiped Amy and would love nothing more than to transform herself into her idol on the big screen…. She’d be spot on performing Amy’s songs and has got the right look and bolshy attitude…. GaGa’s been itching to make the transition from music into movies and sees this as the ideal role to launch her film career.”
[photogallerylink id=112066 align=left]I can definitely see Gaga wanting to get into movies and acting, I mean it’s the next
Madonna logical step. But would she want her first role to be the portrayal of another pop star? Something sounds fishy about that.
Ms Gaga is a VERY calculated woman, and I for one could see her playing some sort of Evita role before she took on someone like Amy Winehouse.
There’s still no word from Gaga’s camp about all this, so stay tuned.
