Susan Boyle - Meryl Streep In Talks To Portray Susan Boyle

Scottish star Susan Boyle has revealed Meryl Streep is in talks to portray the veteran singer in an upcoming biopic.

The former Britain's Got Talent winner's unexpected rise to fame is heading to the big screen and one of the names on the short list to play Boyle is Oscar-winner Streep.

In an interview with Britain's Metro newspaper, shy Boyle admits, "I wouldn't like to be in the film myself. I'd like someone to play me. Probably Meryl Streep - I understand she has been approached."

The Iron Lady actress is reportedly not the only woman in line for the part - both Catherine Zeta-Jones and Glenn Close have also been tapped to play Boyle.

Since the opera singer was crowned the unlikely winner of Bgt in 2009, the 52 year old has sold more than 19 million albums worldwide, earned two Grammy nominations and been honoured on stage with a musical based on her life.

The biopic is being produced by Britain's Got Talent boss Simon Cowell and Fox Searchlight studio executives.
