Cilla Black's estate happy with 'fabulous' Lady Gaga casting
The estate of the late Cilla Black has responded to positively to news that Lady Gaga will play the role of the singer and TV host in a new movie.
It was revealed today (May 13) that the US star will play Black in a new Dionne Warwick biopic based on the iconic singer's autobiography.
Reacting to the news, Black's estate commented: "We think Lady Gaga is fabulous!
"She’s a great actress and we really look forward to seeing her portrayal."
Cilla Black, who died in 2015, sparred with the singer after her version of 'Anyone Who Had a Heart' proved more successful than Warwick's original.
The film will focus on a period in Warwick's life in the 1960s.
Gaga recently starred in US TV series American Horror Story: Hotel, winning a Golden Globe in the process.
