The 65-year-old star of Oscar-winning documentary '20 Feet From Stardom' - which tells the story of famous musician's backup singers - claims she received a phone call from the 'Fame' hitmaker just days before her film won the Academy Award.
Speaking to PageSix.com, she said: ''I got a call from David Bowie out of the blue two days ago. He told me he wanted to write my next project. I couldn't believe it when I first heard his voice. We haven't seen each other in 20 years.''
Opening up about her excitement over the success of '20 Feet From Stardom' Merry admitted she won't let David, 67, go back on his word.
She said: ''This is bringing so many gifts back from my past. I am not sure what my next project will be... but I will definitely hold David to his promise.''
