Amy Winehouse’s dad, Mitch Winehouse, announced that an official biopic based on his daughter’s life is in the works. The film is scheduled to begin casting this fall and is scheduled to go into production in 2019. There are several names being thrown around as to who will play the legend. Her dad told the U.K. Sun., “What we want is somebody to portray Amy in the way that she was… the funny, brilliant, charming and horrible person that she was. I wouldn’t mind betting it would be an unknown, young, English – London, Cockney – actress who looks a bit like Amy,”
The biopic which is not yet titled, will be directed by Alison Owen and its script will be written by Geoff Deane (Kinky Boots). In other Amy Winehouse news, be on the look out for an upcoming Amy Winehouse hologram tour in 2019.
