Recently we reported that an Amy Winehouse hologram tour is scheduled to take place next year. However, the late singer’s estate has more plans in the works to continue to keep her legacy alive.
According to The Guardian, a family-approved biopic is also in the works as well. The Winehouse family will serve as executive producers on the film, which is scheduled to start filming in 2019.
Proceeds from the film will reportedly go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which “works to prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people.”
Amy’s father, Mitch Winehouse said in a statement, “We now feel able to celebrate Amy’s extraordinary life and talent, and we know through the Amy Winehouse Foundation that the true story of her illness can help so many others who might be experiencing similar issues.”
Monumental Pictures also said in a statement, “We’re proud that Mitch Winehouse has entrusted us with the story of amazing Amy, an icon whose songs have provided the soundtrack to a generation.”
Debra Hayward and Alison Owen will also produce the film, and Geoff Deane, the writer of the film“Kinky Boots,” will pen the script.
