Adele in talks to play Dusty Springfield in biopic

Singer Adele is in talks to portray late musician Dusty Springfield in an upcoming biopic. The film has been rumored to go ahead since director Nick Hurran was enlisted to adapt the Sharon Davis biography A Girl Called Dusty in 2011. While production is yet to begin, rumors abound that Adele is being tapped for the lead role. She recently won an Academy Award for her original song Skyfall, but has yet to make the foray onto the big screen. She has also been linked to a role in Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming thriller The Secret Service, which stars Colin Firth and is rumored to include cameos from David Beckham, Elton John and Taylor Swift.

The Dusty Springfield biopic will depict the singer’s life in the 1960s. It was in that decade that she began her solo career and made some of her most acclaimed music, including I Only Want to Be With You  and Son of a Preacher Man. She died in 1999 and is regarded as one of Britain’s most successful female performers during her peak. ~Raj-Kabir Birk

    Of course, for some of us, that role can cause problems, such as the time I spent a week trying to convince Mrs. Dadler we needed the Mountain Buggy Duo double stroller when we were expecting our first child.
