Amy Winehouse's father announced Monday (Dec. 12) that a biopic depicting his daughter's tragic life will never hit the big screen.
Rumors surrounding the flick claimed that Winehouse's ex-boyfriend, Reg Traviss, was approached about possibly producing the biopic. Last week Traviss told the Mirror that the film was " inevitable."
Other recent reports claimed that the singer's father, Mitch Winehouse, wanted Lady Gaga to portray his daughter in the film.
Mitch Winehouse, who owns the copyright to all of her music and told the Daily Mail, "It would hardly be a biopic without the music and we'd never allow the songs to be released."
Mitch Winehouse has recently signed a deal with publisher HarperCollins to write a memoir depicting his daughter's life. Proceeds from the book will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a new charity for the victims of substance abuse and disadvantaged children.
The foundation officially launched in September, which would have been the singer's 28th birthday. Profits from Winehouse's posthumous album of unreleased material, "Lioness," also went to the charity.
