The Devil Wears Prada director David Frankel has picked up a movie biopic about Simon Cowell's protege Paul Potts, after the project was axed earlier this year (10).
Opera singer Potts shot to fame after winning the first series of U.K. reality TV show Britain's Got Talent in 2007 and Hollywood producers announced plans to take his story to the big screen.
The film was cancelled earlier this year (10) after they failed to find an actor to fill the lead role and Cowell subsequently dropped Potts from his SyCo label.
But Frankel has decided to revive the project, entitled One Chance, according to movie website TheWrap.com.
The star makes his superhero debut in the upcoming movie.
The new movie mixes old and new territory.
