An AMY WINEHOUSE Biopic Is In The Works
Late British singer Amy Winehouse's equally colorful and controversial life and career will be immortalized on the big screen in a year or two, her father confirms.
Mitch Winehouse revealed in a recent interview that the script is currently being penned. "The movie is gonna be in a year or two. We’ve gone beyond talks, we’re at script stage. The film is going to be a biopic," he told The Morning After podcast.
He added that the new film will be a more truthful portrayal of the "Rehab" singer's life and their relationship as father and daughter. "We’ve got a lovely movie, a lovely Broadway show coming, and that’s how we’ll get our own back, by portraying Amy the way she was." Other details about the biopic have yet to be disclosed.
Also known for other hits like "You Know I'm No Good" and "Love Is A Losing Game", Amy was in the prime of her career when she died of alcohol poisoning in 2011. She was 27.
