UPDATE: According to Hollywood Reporter, Lady Gaga will not appear on the movie. Gaga's representatives are denying her involvement in the particular project.
We can now finally watch the Golden Globe winning actress Lady Gaga slaying in a major acting role in the big screen! American singer Dionne Warwick took to Cannes Film Festival today to announce a film that will base on her life and career story in the 1960s. The film is titled "Dionne", which is scheduled to begin production on late 2016, and will feature actors including Lady Gaga who will play as Cilla Black, Warwick's biggest rival in the music industry!
Cilla Black was known for her 1964 hit "Anyone Who Had a Heart". The song went number one in charts and became one of the best-selling singles of all time in the UK. But during an interview at the recent Cannes Film Festival, Dionne Warwick reveals that Black have stolen the song from her. Both Cilla and Dionne became one of the biggest female singers/sogwriters during the 60s.
When asked why Lady Gaga was cast to play as Cilla Black, Warwick told reporters, "Why not? It was just an easy choice and she wanted to do it." Warwick herself will be portrayed by former Destiny's Child member Letoya Luckett.
