Lady Gaga is expected to star in the upcoming biopic of legendary singer Dionne Warwick .
The confirmation was given by the 75 year-old singer herself, ” There was a confusion about Gaga’s inclusion as her music reps were the ones that knew about the deal, and not her film reps,” Warwick was quoted by The Hollywood Reporter in a report by The Indian Express.
Lady Gaga’s publicist has shot down reports suggesting the pop star has been cast as late British singer Cilla Black in a new biopic.
Dionne Warwick sparked the rumours at a Cannes Film Festival press conference on Friday (13May16), while announcing details of her new movie Dionne.
The Walk on By singer revealed the movie will chronicle her battles with her “nemesis” Black, before revealing the cast.
Gaga’s name even appeared appeared alongside former Destiny’s Child star LaToya Luckett, who will portray Warwick, on a promotional poster unveiled before the media at Cannes.
But the Poker Face star’s camp insists Gaga will not be playing Cilla in the film.
“Lady Gaga is not attached and will not appear in the project,” her publicist told Variety. “Reports of Gaga starring in the project are false.” Warwick’s representatives have yet to comment on the drama.
