Mitch WInehouse Thinks Lady Gaga Could Play Amy Winehouse
He said: “There will be a biopic. Lady Gaga is welcome to audition for the part of Amy – she would be great. Ray Winstone will probably end up playing me.“
Gaga has been linked with the role before. Last August, a source said she wanted to get the role because she “worshipped Amy” and “would love nothing more than to transform herself into her idol on the big screen”.
The source added: “She’d be spot on performing Amy’s songs and has got the right look and 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. Gaga’s management team had been discussing possible film ventures before Amy’s untimely death. But there’s only ever been one role she wants and that’s to play Amy.”
