Susan Boyle Wants George Clooney For Her Movie


Susan Boyle has signed a Hollywood movie deal to tell the story of her life, and she's aiming high for who she wants in the cast, putting George Clooney top of her wish list for a role.

The Scottish singer, who shot to fame via Britain's Got Talent in 2009, will have a film based on her autobiography 'The Woman I Was Born To Be' made, charting her rise from reclusive middle-aged woman to global star after two minutes of singing 'I Dreamed A Dream' on ITV.

According to The Sun she wants Clooney to play a manager role, saying: "It's wishful thinking. But it's Hollywood … anything can happen."

If that means Britain's Got Talent impresario Simon Cowell then we're sure the karaoke model will be pleased, although silver fox George would likely need a dye job and crimping to emulate Simon's distinctive flat top mane.

There's already been a musical based on Boyle's life, starring Elaine C Smith, most famous for her role on cult Scottish sit-com  Rab C. Nesbitt. Boyle appeared for encores during the show's run.

However it is not known if Boyle will have any creative input into the film, nor whether she'll be making a cameo.
