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.

The film is due to begin shooting in Vancouver, Canada, later this year (04).
