Katy Perry & Adele Up For Same Role: Who Has Your Vote? (POLL)
According to the New York Post, movie mogul Harvey Weinstein approached Katy on Oscars Sunday to be involved in a biopic film about the life of opera singer Paul Potts. He was interested in casting her as the musician's wife. The Post describes the movie as Billy Elliot-like, and says it's about the "English mobile-phone salesman who became a singing sensation after winning Simon Cowell’s Britain’s Got Talent in 2007."
Meanwhile, Adele's name has also been thrown into the mix to take on this role.
He said during the Oscars festivities, “I was talking to Katy about a new project, a possible dramatic role in the Paul Potts movie, which will be shooting in England soon. We’d really like someone like Katy or Adele to play the role of Potts’ wife, and Katy seemed genuinely interested.”
