Mitch Winehouse, the father of the late Amy Winehouse, has revealed that a biopic film on the late singer is planned for release in "a year or two".
Since Amy Winehouse's death in 2011, there's been two documentaries made, one titled Amy - which was directed by Asif Kapadia and released in 2015, and Amy Winehouse: Back to Black, which arrived in 2018 and was directed by Jeremy Marre.
In a new interview on Paul Danan's The Morning After podcast, Mitch Winehouse, the father of the late singer, spoke about an upcoming biopic that's in the works. He said of the new film, "We've got a lovely movie, a lovely Broadway show coming, and that's how we'll get our own back, by portraying Amy the way she was."
He added, "The movie is gonna be in a year or two. We've gone beyond talks, we're at script stage. The film is going to be a biopic."
Winehouse also explained that he'll be involved in the casting process, "The casting will be – and I get to choose, with recommendations from the producer – a star-maker. We're gonna get an unknown actress, ideally a Jewish girl from North or East London who looks a bit like Amy and talks like Amy."
