Jade Goody: The Musical?
First there were rumors that British reality star Jade Goody, who tragically passed away on March 22 after a heavily publicized battle with cervical cancer, would be remembered in a biographical film.
Now, OK! Magazine is reporting that Jade Goody: The Musical may very well be in the works, and could come to the stage in as little as four months. On Britains ITN On news service, a friend revealed that the family is already prepared to cast someone to play Jade.
Close friend Danny Hayward revealed at the launch of the last part of Jade’s autobiography, “Various projects we’ve got in the pipeline is [sic] a musical we’ve got coming out in about four months time and its going to be the story of her life.”
He added, “We’re going to be on the search for who is going to play Jade. Hopefully we’ll have a panel of not only creative experts but people that were close to Jade to be able to pick somebody that has to be able to dance to sing, because Jade could sing, she had a fabulous voice. And to act obviously, to play the part of Jade, and to have that kind of extra special kind of sparkle that she had.”
Goody became a British media sensation after stints on Big Brother, and her struggle with cancer and everntual death were covered incessantly by the press.
