A biopic of musician Amy Winehouse’s life is reported to be currently in the works, with Irish filmmaker Kirsten Sheridan set to write and direct a dramatisation of the life of the brilliant but troubled soul singer. Swedish actress Noomi Rapace (Prometheus, Girl With The Dragon Tattoo) is apparently in talks to play the role of Winehouse, who tragically died from alcohol poisoning in 2011, at the age of 27.

The announcement comes soon after the release of Asif Kapadia’s documentary Amy, which premiered at Cannes this year and gained critical and commercial success for its depiction of the Grammy Award-winning musician’s life.
