Dionne Warwick was in Cannes this morning to tubthump an upcoming biopic based partly on her autobiography, My Life as I See It. Turns out, the film isn’t exactly how the folks who announced it this morning see it. Lady Gaga was a big element of the unveiling this morning in the role of Warwick nemesis Cilla Black. But her reps now are denying all involvement.
“Lady Gaga is not attached and will not appear in this project,” Gaga’s reps say. “Reports of Gaga starring in this project are false.”
Warrick told media later in the day that it will all be worked out — one way or another. But it is a strange turn of events given the press conference this morning had all the earmarks of a serious event, and with Warwick in attendance and even with Lady Gaga’s name on the poster (see below).
We’ve confirmed that Destiny’s Child’s LeToya Luckett is starring as Warwick.
