    Lady Gaga may soon be parlaying her talents into the big screen: The pop singer is reportedly in talks with Hollywood producers about playing Amy Winehouse in a new film about the singer’s tragic life. “Lady Gaga worshipped Amy and would love nothing more than to transform herself into her idol on the big screen,” an insider told The Daily Star. Gaga had previously said she couldn’t speak for “48 hours straight” after learning that Winehouse had died. Meanwhile, the deceased singer’s family has decided to turn her home into the headquarters for the new Amy Winehouse Foundation, which could include a rehab. Winehouse’s dad said the foundation will be devoted to “causes close to her heart,” including “help for children in trouble, kids suffering health problems, children’s hospices and more.”
