Katy Perry has been approached to star in a new movie about opera singer Paul Potts.
Film bosses are preparing to start work on a biopic telling the life story of the Potts, who found fame by winning Simon Cowell's reality TV show 'Britain's Got Talent' in 2007.
Movie mogul Harvey Weinstein, who is backing the project wants either Perry or superstar Adele to play Potts' wife, and the 'I Kissed a Girl' hitmaker seemed "genuinely interested" in the job.
"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," Daily Express quoted him as telling the New York Post.
He revealed that he had spoken to Perry about taking the part during a pre-Oscars party in New York in February.
