    Amy Winehouse: the movie star. It’s a real possibility – if the troubled singer can clean up her act.

    The 25-year-old star has been sent a script by Universal Pictures, with the view to her playing a music teacher in a problem school.

    They’ve even offered a coach to help improve her acting skills.

    A source told The Sun: ‘The movie is a bit like Michelle Pfeiffer’s film Dangerous Minds. Playing a music teacher will allow Amy to use her singing skills.

    Jonathan Rhys Meyers is being talked about as her co-star.

    ‘She has been offered an acting coach called Matt Ryan from the Royal Academy of Music Theatre Department in London.

    ‘But she needs to improve her health and state of mind, or the opportunity will be withdrawn.’

    The source added: ‘You can’t have a teacher looking like a scrawny crack addict. It’s hoped the offer will be an incentive for her.’
