Charlotte Church Set For Madonna Role
Teen singing superstar CHARLOTTE CHURCH is reportedly being lined up to star in a remake of MADONNA movie DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN.
According to British newspaper the DAILY STAR, Hollywood bosses want Welsh soprano Church, 18, to take the SUSAN role - played by the queen of pop in the 1985 romantic comedy.
A source tells the Star, "This is a great role for Charlotte.
"She has been waiting for ages for the right film role to come along and studio bosses are talking about her non-stop at the moment. They predict big things for her."
In the original, ROSANNA ARQUETTE plays a bored housewife who pursues the mysterious Susan after spotting messages to her in adverts left in a newspaper.
BRITNEY SPEARS and former S CLUB singer HANNAH SPEARRITT are being mooted for Arquette's part.
