Amy Winehouse's parents Mitch and Janice Winehouse insist they will never allow a biopic of her life to be made.
Amy Winehouse's parents will ''never '' allow a biopic of her life to be made..
Mitch and Janice Winehouse - who are separated - would not be comfortable to see their late daughter's life story told on the big screen and would not sanction a film.
Janice insists she wouldn't feel comfortable seeing a Hollywood actress portray Amy - who tragically died from alcohol intoxication at her home in Camden, north London, in July 2011 at the age of 27 - but she and Mitch were happy to be involved in the upcoming documentary made by 'Senna' director Asif Kapadia.
When asked if she would allow a film about Amy's life to be made, Janice told Bang Showbiz: ''No you couldn't, oh no. You cannot have somebody else portraying her. We were actually called in and we were talking about things so there will be voices from family and friends talking about her [in the documentary] but you can't have someone playing Amy the character. There is only one Amy.''
Mitch - who wrote his own 2012 autobiography ' Amy: My Daughter' - added: ''As far as a film is concerned there will never be a biopic, because they are all the same. Johnny Cash, Ray Charles you pick them up and put Amy in it's exactly the same story. Everyone is bored with that stuff.''
Mitch set up the Amy Winehouse Foundation in memory of his daughter to help homeless youngsters and people struggling with substance abuse problems.
