SISTER ACT star Kathy Najimy is to bring tragic MAMAS + THE PAPAS star

MAMA CASS ELLIOTT back to life in a new TV biopic.

The comedienne and actress has been involved in the project for years but legal problems have prevented the cameras from rolling on the film.

Najimy says, "I'm hoping we can get it done next year (05). I'd like to do it before I'm 60.

"When I first heard about this, I knew what everyone else knows about Cass

Elliott and the Mamas + The Papas. But when I started to research her, I realised what an amazing, trailblazing woman she was, how politically involved, how much of a force she was in the music world."

Elliott died from a heart attack in 1974.
