George Clooney to Play Susan Boyle's Manager In Hollywood Biopic?

The amazing story of Susan Boyle's rise to fame is set to be made into a Hollywood blockbuster and the Scottish singing sensation has big ideas for the cast. The I Dreamed A Dream star, 51, has just returned from the US where she signed a megabucks deal for the movie.

Filming will start next year, and Boyle has already decided who she wants to play her manager - George Clooney. "It's wishful thinking. But it's Hollywood... anything can happen," she told The Sun. The Descendants star is working on a couple of movies, though his filming schedule is relatively clear for the next couple of years. So if the Hollywood star ends up playing Boyle's manager, who will play the singer herself? Actress Elaine C Smith, best known for playing Mary in Scottish sitcom Rab C Nesbitt, played the Britain's Got Talent star in the stage-play of Boyle's life, though it's unlikely she'll star in the movie adaptation. 

Boyle's fourth studio album Standing Ovation: The Greatest Songs From The Stage was released on November 13, 2012. It features renditions of songs from musical theatre shows and films and includes duets with Donny Osmond and Michael Crawford.
