Amy Winehouse’s father Mitch has revealed he would consider casting Lady GaGa to play his daughter in a biopic – if she pays him £10million.
The former taxi driver – who visited Amy’s former home in Camden on the first anniversary of her death earlier this week – has told The Daily Star that despite GaGa’s rumoured interest in the role, he’s not keen on the idea.
Mitch told the tabloid: “If GaGa gives me £10million I will consider it.
Back in December, the 60-year old addressed reports suggesting he had backed the Poker Face star to play Winehouse if a film about the late singer was to be made, telling The Mirror: “I have heard that Lady GaGa is keen to play Amy in a film.
“I don’t know what her English accent is like but it’s not just an English accent she would have to perfect – it’s an English-Cockney-Jewish accent so she better start practising now. But she would be great.”
Mitch seems to have changed his tune after previously dismissing any talk of a film about Amy’s life, stating: “It would hardly be a biopic without the music and we’d never allow the songs to be released.”
