Susan Boyle wants George Clooney

The life story of Susan Boyle is being made into a film and Boyle has already decided that actor George Clooney should play her manager.  She said:  “My story will make a great film. We are in the middle of negotiations just now for a film about my life,” according to Times Alive. That’s not all, Boyle, 51,  wants 62-year-old Julie Walters to play herself adding, “There’s only one person I’d love to play me – and that’s Julie Walters. She would do the job and you just know she would do my story justice.” The film is set to begin production next year, though it’s still unclear if the Britain’s Got Talent singer will be part of the film or not.  Boyle’s life story was made into a musical earlier this year titled, I Dreamed A Dream, which focused on her birth, faith and the courage to handle difficulties. ~ Luxy Hariharan

    She deserves all the accolades she gets. She truly earned it.

  2. Snepts • November 22, 2012 @ 4:06 PM

    Cathy Jones (THIS HOUR HAS 22 MINUTES) should play her.

  3. KennyRogers • November 22, 2012 @ 4:09 PM

    This movie will be a flop!

    @snepts hahaha I was thinking the exact same thing. She needs to sing however.

    Who wants to see a movie about someone who got their 15 mins of fame? Not me.

    Who in their right mind would want to produce this? Great, you got your shiit together, made a lot of money, got your 15 mins of fame, but why on earth would you want to make a movie about it? Seriously, is hollywood running out of ideas that they have to resort to this? As Joe Biden would say this is a bunch of Malarkey.

    For the love of god, NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!! I lost a million brain cells after hearing about this.

    I don’t know why there is so much hate in the posts about her. If you people knew the hardship she had to go through to get where she is now, you would probably appreciate the need to tell it. It was a wonderful journey she went through, and the fact she gets to share it with the world I think is marvelous.

    She might be a great singer but that doesn’t mean they should make a movie about her. Epic fail

    If Chris Farley was alive he would make a great Susan Boyle.

  11. KennyRogers • November 22, 2012 @ 4:50 PM

    That hat she has on in the pic is it a bucket?

  12. BM • November 22, 2012 @ 5:01 PM

    Hey Craig007, what do you mean 15 mins of fame. The lady has a voice. Haven’t you heard her sing?

  13. Craig007 • November 22, 2012 @ 5:44 PM

    Yah I heard her sing. Not that great of a voice, might I add. The money should be invested in something more meaningful.

  14. DonkeyKong • November 22, 2012 @ 5:59 PM

    No.

  15. DonkeyKong • November 22, 2012 @ 5:59 PM

    No.

    I totally agree with having Cathy Jones play her! They could be sisters and it might have some homour. But a movie is a bit much. Make it a tv special? Like Hallmark Hall of Fame type. I think they would throw their money away by putting it in theatre (except playing in GB)

  17. Franklin • November 22, 2012 @ 6:36 PM

    I agree with C-dub, it’s better to make this a tv movie or something. But something tells me Simon Cowell dipped his hands in this movie, probably as a producer. These money hungry Hollywood Billionaires will sink to any depths to make money.

  18. Thuppaki • November 22, 2012 @ 7:05 PM

    Horrible idea. Make it stop, somebody please make it stop.

  19. Snepts • November 22, 2012 @ 9:04 PM

    They should make movies about all the X Factor/American Idol/America’s Got Talent “celebrities.” “FROM JUSTIN TO KELLY II” is wayyy overdue!

  20. Snepts • November 22, 2012 @ 9:06 PM

    Why is she wearing a bell from Westminster Abbey on her head???

  21. Rita • November 23, 2012 @ 5:36 AM

    That would be nice to see her life story in a movie, to see what she has gone through in Life. But I really don’t know if I would go see it, if it was made into a movie (got to think about it). I agree with another poster, that a tv movie would be better. I would see it then.

  22. Peanut Butter • November 25, 2012 @ 5:24 AM

    Well if they do make a movie of her life Ghram Norton will have new Susan Boyle material, and she can continue to be cannon fodder for him.

    As for her as a person, I only know of her through G.N.’s comments (which are unkind, to put it mildly).

    As for any of you who think he’s mean, you’re right, he is. But he’s mean to everybody including himself, on his show, nobody’s safe.
