Beyonce is in talks to play the late great Eartha Kitt in a new film.
After portraying Etta James in Cadillac Records and emulating Diana Ross in Dreamgirls, the singer/actress is hoping to complete a trilogy of diva roles by taking on original Catwoman Kitt on the big screen.
She says, "I was going to do a film about Eartha Kitt. It's a great story, but I don't know if it's still happening.
"If it does, it'll just fall into place."
Kitt died on Christmas Day (25Dec08) after losing her battle with colon cancer, aged 81.
