Reportedly, there is Amy Winehouse biopic in the works, and industry insiders are saying that Marisa Abela is the frontrunner to play Amy.

Back In Black will be directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, who allegedly feels Marisa is the top choice for Winehouse. Marisa Abela is currently starring in the HBO series called Industry, which just got renewed for another season.

They report that the role was always intended to go to a newcomer rather than a pop star, and that there are other actresses in the mix.

Do you think Lady Gaga should play the role of Amy Winehouse instead of Marisa Abela?
