Amy Winehouse’s life could be made into a film as Hollywood producers battle for the screen rights to a book about the talented British singer who died earlier this year.

The film may be based on the book by celebrity journalist Daphne Barak, Saving Amy. In the book Barak reveals details of her friendship with the late star, sharing candid portraits of life with Amy which include their trip to St Lucia. Barak also reflects on looking after Amy while she was ‘resting’ at various hospitals in England.

There is no screenplay or director yet, but if the right scriptwriter can be found to do justice to Barak’s book, we can look forward to an intimate film about the troubled Back to Black singer.

The only question on our mind is who could possibly play Amy Winehouse? Who do you think it should be? And don’t even think about saying Lady Gaga.
