Lady Gaga to Play Amy Winehouse in Film?

Plenty of rumors about late singer Amy Winehouse have swirled since her death three weeks ago, ranging from the fact that she was about to adopt a daughter to the suggestion that she partied hard and purchased even harder drugs the night before her death. The latest Winehouse rumor involves Lady Gaga, with the UK’s Daily Star reporting that Gaga is engaged in secret discussions to portray Winehouse in a film about the late singer’s life.

Since Winehouse’s death on July 23 has become such a hot topic, Hollywood execs are looking to fast track a film about the ‘Rehab’ singer and they allegedly think that Gaga would be the perfect person to portray Winehouse on the big screen. Keep in mind that the Academy loves a biopic, so if this news actually turns out to be real and eventually yields a film, we bet Gaga could nab an Oscar nomination. But we’re thinking really far into the future with that kinda talk.

A source claims that Gaga “worshipped” Winehouse and would jump at the chance to play her. While we don’t doubt that Gaga could rock a disheveled black beehive and extreme black eyeliner and we’d love to hear her belt out Winehouse’s hits like ‘Rehab,’ this sounds like the work of gossipy busybodies.

While the source also said that “Gaga has been itching to make the transition from music into movies and sees this as the ideal role to launch her film career,” we’re a bit skeptical here at PopCrush. We don’t doubt that Gaga has been inundated with scripts for potential film roles, but the Mother Monster herself has not said anything in the press about stepping into Winehouse’s ballet flats in a movie. She did discuss her warm feelings about Winehouse when she sat on the panel for the morning gabfest ‘The View‘ a while back.
