According to Screen Daily, a biopic on the late Amy Winehouse is in the works, and Noomi Rapace is looking likely to play Winehouse. August Rush director Kirsten Sheridan is looking to stick with music for what is currently known simply as Amy Winehouse, which she has written for Subotica Films and which is now out looking for financing and distribution deals. Also in negotiation? Those all-important music rights, which can make or break a biopic like this. There’s a chance that could be a tough hurdle as Winehouse’s father is also reportedly trying to get his own film about his daughter made. Rapace is at work on sci-fi thriller What Happened To Monday? and will be back in the Prometheus world for Ridley Scott’s Alien: Paradise Lost, which starts shooting early next year. In music biopic terms, she’s also attached to play Maria Callas in Niki Caro’s Callas.
