Amy Winehouse's life story, while tragic, would certainly make for a memorable movie. And there are rumors running rampant that Lady Gaga might actually take on the role of the late singer!

And get this. Amy's father, Mitch Winehouse, has supposedly given his stamp of approval on the casting.

"I have heard that Lady Gaga is keen to play Amy in a film," Mitch is quoted as saying to the U.K.'s Mirror. "I don't know what her English accent is like but it's not just an English accent she would have to perfect—it's an English-Cockney-Jewish accent so she better start practicing now. But she would be great."

So is one music icon about to portray another? Hold on, little monsters, because this rumor is...

So false!

"I never said Lady Gaga will play Amy in film," Mitch himself tweeted about such cinema speculation, while clarifying another story at the same time: "Also Amy's room not a shrine. Wot a load of rubbish."

What's more, The Daily Mail spoke to Amy's dad, who told the paper that his daughter's story "will never be told in film," adding: "It would hardly be a biopic without the music and we'd never allow the songs to be released."

Speaking of Winehouse's music, a posthumous album, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, was released last week.
