Lady Gaga is getting a Lifetime movie bio

HollywoodNews.com: Exclusive: I don’t know if she knows it, but Lady Gaga is getting a Lifetime movie biopic. A casting call has gone out for an actress to play Stefani Germanotta, aka Gaga, from Lifetime. Listed as the producer is Ilene Kahn Power. Norman Snider has written the script for the film called “Fame Monster.” It’s a Toronto production. I’m told it’s optioned from Maureen Callahan‘s book, “Poker Face.” It’s not a “go” movie apparently, but they’re casting away. I’m told it’s also a love letter to Gaga, and not a’ “slash and burn.” It’s going to be about she invented herself, I’m told, and not about her copyrighted later appearances and costumes.

Here’s the description: “[STEFANI GERMANOTTA (LADY GAGA)] is a bright rebellious Catholic school girl who dreams of fame. The story covers her from age 16 to 22. When we first meet her she is a dark haired, off beat, very talented and intensely ambitious teen. She comes from a Italian/American well off, close knit, Upper West Side NYC family. She never felt she ‘fit in’ with her fellow students in high school and was disappointed when her college experience at NYU didn’t meet her expectations.

So, with her parent’s reluctant permission at 19, she drops out and moves downtown to the Lower East Side where the artists are. Independent and strong willed, Stefani learns she must be something more than a talented young girl and to really stand out, she must change. The story covers the ups and downs of her amazing rise and eventually to her transformation to Lady GAGA. We are seeking an actress who can physically resemble Lady GAGA (see photo) and who can believably span ages 16 to 22. Singing is preferred but not required.”

The last line is funny, because Lady Gaga can sure sing.

    Mischa Barton, Kat Dennings, Blake Lively, Leighton Meester or Evan Rachel Wood as Lady Gaga

    I hope they include Lady Gaga in the Star Trek sequel as a singer with dark connections to the villains. With her futuristic music and style, she would fit right in.
I’d like to see Kirk, Spock and McCoy go undercover to a techno concert of hers on a distant planet which is raided by many henchmen who have a thunderous phaser fight with them.
