LADY Gaga is in secret talks to play Amy Winehouse in a film about the singer’s tragic life.
Hollywood movie moguls want to capitalise on the global outpouring of grief following her death on July 23.
LA producers think outrageous pop phenomenon Gaga would be perfect in the starring role.
A Hollywood insider said: “Lady Gaga worshipped 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.”"
It has been reported that after completing her nearly two-year long Monster Ball world tour, the Poker Face singer, 25, was inundated with film scripts.
However, she has been waiting for the perfect part. Our insider said: “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.”
Talking about the death of Amy, Gaga said: “I am just so devast-ated and so sad. I really could not speak for 48 hours straight, I was in such shock. “She was the most lovely and nice and kind woman."
