Noomi Rapace to play Amy Wnehouse

An Amy Winehouse biopic is in the works, and it will tell the tale of her rocky road to success, up to her tragic passing in 2011. In talks to play the soulful singer is actress Noomi Rapace, who you may remember from her breakout role in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, and more recently, Prometheus and Child 44.

The film’s working title is simply Amy Winehouse, and it will be written and directed by Irish filmmaker Kristen Sheridan. Music rights are often a hurdle with these biopics – hence the hold-up with the long-awaited Tupac one, but reports say producers are already in talks with Amy’s father, Mitch Winehouse, who controls her estate.

Previously, Amy’s life was chronicled in the critically acclaimed documentary Amy (which premiered at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival,) but her father has spoken out against it and was not on board.
