Seven years after the premiere of the documentary Amy Winehouse, a very emotional and critically acclaimed piece, the life and work of singer will return to the big screen with the future premiere of a biopic that, unlike the previous one, does have the approval of the parents of the deceased interpreter.
According to the Daily Mail newspaper, the casting director Nina Gold is already looking for an actress, with a great physical resemblance to the artist, who can embody the soul diva in the production, which is currently in the early stages of the process. The same medium ensures that Gold toured several schools of dramatic art in London to find “her Amy“.

“She is looking for a girl in her 20s, who will surely become a star after her leading role in the film“, sources said.
The parents of the deceased singer-songwriter, who died in July 2011, aged just 27th, after an excessive intake of alcohol, not only gave the green light to the project but will also be involved in almost all aspects of the work. Mitch and Janis thus intend to get rid of the thorn of a documentary that left them deeply indignant at the portrait, in their opinion distorted and negative, that they made of the artist.
