London: Singer Lady Gaga is reportedly in talks to play Amy Winehouse in a new film about the tragic star's life.

"She'd be spot on performing Amy's songs and has got the right look and bolshy attitude. Gaga's been itching to make the transition from music into movies and sees this as the ideal role to launch her film career," an English daily quoted an insider as saying.

It is reported that after completing her nearly two-year long Monster Ball world tour, the "Poker Face" singer has been inundated with film scripts.

"Gaga's management team had been discussing possible film ventures before Amy's untimely death. But there's only ever been one role she wants and that's to play Amy," said the insider.
