Fifty Shades helmer, Sam Taylor-Johnson has been set to direct the long in gestation biopic on late musician Amy Winehouse, ‘Back To Black.’

The film is expected to take a look at the life and music of Winehouse who started off as a budding North London jazz singer to eventually becoming a Grammy-winning music superstar with hit records that included ‘Rehab’ and ‘Back To Black.’  Her life would eventually be cut short in 2011 at age 27 following a long battle with alcohol and drugs.

Matt Greenhalgh has written the script, Studiocanal is producing with Alison Owen and Debra Hayward alongside Tracey Seaward.

Since Winehouse’s premature death in 2011, there has been numerous attempts to make a story on her life for the big screen, at one point Noomi Rapace was attached to star in one attempt at Lotus Entertainment.

This latest offering has the full support of the Amy Winehouse estate. Producers and Taylor-Johnson will begin their search for the individual who will take on the role of Winehouse in the weeks to come.
