Noomi Rapace Eyed For Amy Winehouse Biopic

Asif Kapadia’s Amy Winehouse documentary, Amy, arrived this past summer and brought with it a storm of praise from the media and criticism from members of Winehouse’s family. Now, Winehouse’s life is being made into a biopic. Irish filmmaker Kristen Sheridan will direct the simply titled Amy Winehouse, and today The Hollywood Reporter announced that Noomi Rapace might play the late singer. Rapace is best known for her performance in the Girl With The Dragon Tattoo series. Producers are in talks with Winehouse’s father and estate handler, Mitch Winehouse, about obtaining the rights to her music for the film.
