Lady Gaga to Star as Dionne Warwick’s Rival in Biopic of the Singer
Onetime Destiny's Child member LeToya Luckett will play Warwick
Grammy-winning singer Dionne Warwick has announced during an appearance at the Cannes Film Festival that she’s plotting a biopic about her storied life, one that’ll feature former Destiny’s Child singer LeToya Luckett in the starring role. Playing the role of her rival at the time, Cilla Black, will be American Horror Story actress and Golden Globe-winner Lady Gaga.
The film — to be titled simply Dionne — will be based on Warwick’s 2010 memoir My Life as I See It and will focus mainly on the years 1962 through 1968. Mario Van Peebles (director of 1991’s New Jack City) is in talks to direct.
