Swedish actress Noomi Rapace ("Prometheus", "Millenium" trilogy) is in talks to play Amy Winehouse in an upcoming biopic.

According to Screen Daily, the film is being developed by Subotica Films, one of Ireland's leading film and TV production companies whose credits include the Jimi Hendrix biopic "Jimi: All Is by My Side" and Jake Paltrow's sci-fi drama "Young Ones". Also involved are City Entertainment, the US company responsable for the forgettable 2014 "Rosemary's Baby" mini-series adaptation.

The script has been written by Kirsten Sheridan, daughter of renowned director Jim Sheridan ("In the Name of the Father"), who is also expected to direct. She is known for helming "August Rush" and co-writing the Oscar-nominated script of "In America" alongside her father and sister.

Rapace is working hard these days. In 2016 she can be seen in four films: Síofra Campbell's thriller "The Price", Michael Apted's "Unlocked", and the sci-fi thrillers "Rupture" and Tommy Wirkola's "What Happened to Monday ?". She is also set to star as Maria Callas in Niki Caro's "Callas", and will reportedly join Christian Bale in the biopic "Enzo Ferrari". And, on top of all that, she will be reprising her role as Elizabeth Shaw in Ridley Scott's "Prometheus" sequel titled "Alien: Paradise Lost".
