An Amy Winehouse biopic is the works and we couldn’t be more excited. This comes after it was confirmed that a hologram of the late singer would be going on tour. They will use prerecorded music that she had worked on or had been working on during her final days.
The singer died back in 2011 on the 23rd of July. She had been struggling with substance abuse for years but it has since been revealed that she was on her way to recovery before the setback that lead to her death. The Singer was set to become one of the most legendary singers of all time. She had won Grammy’s for her album Back to Black album back in 2006. She had won 5 Grammy’s, which was a first for a British singer.
The Cause Of Winehouse’s Death:
Apart from the substance abuse, she was in a toxic relationship with her, then husband, Blake Fielder-Civil. She also struggled with depression and Anorexia(an eating disorder). She eventually tried to quit alcohol and drugs after she divorced her husband in an attempt to get a clean slate.
Her bodyguard stated that the days leading to her death, it showed that she had been intoxicated but she was acting normal and smiling. On the day she was found dead, her bodyguard alleges he first found her lying on her bed he thought nothing of it because that’s usually how she was. He started to notice that she was not breathing when he went to check up on her again and that is when he notified authorities.
A Documentary Of Winehouse:
Reports say her immune system could no longer function because she had been off alcohol for a long time. No illegal substances were found in her body. A documentary of her life was later released back in 2015 which her father authorized. The documentary was so sad. We can only imagine how her family felt while seeing it.
Who Will Play The Role?
For the upcoming biopic fans already have quite a few ideas about who should play her. The first choice being Lady Gaga who has amazing vocals and of course a great actress as seen on American Horror Story and the soon to be released “A star is born”. Fans also mentioned Lauren Jauregui who was a member of the girl-group Fifth Harmony and bears a striking resemblance to the late singer.
