Simon Cowell's Paul Potts Film Axed!

| Filed under: AnglophiliaFilm FlickersSimon Cowell


That's too bad.

Simon Cowell had planned a biopic about Britain's Got Talent star Paul Potts, but the film has been axed after an actor wasn't found to take on the lead role.

Filmmaker Michael Vaughn explains:

"It should have gone ahead. Simon and I had a good vision for how the film should be, and it would have been brilliant. But the studios were umm-ing and ahh-ing and they missed the opportunity to do it.

"It's tragic, because the script was brilliant. Simon had done a great job. I was looking forward to working with him and it would have been a big hit."

Paul Potts won Britain's Got Talent back in 2007 — so maybe the studio just didn't care anymore?

To be honest, we kinda forgot about him, too!

    Vince Vaughn should play him.

  3. RS says – reply to this


    how about a biopic about Will Young? Who is also an actor and very much still young and still able to play his younger (well teen years) self.

    It would have bombed.

    WTF is this person again?

    Never understood why this guy was such a hit. His "opera" voice is pretty dreadful.

    Perez, you've forgotten a REAL singer with an incredible voice but, yet you'll ramble on about that no talent douchebag Lady Ca Ca like shes the second coming. Obviously you don't know what talent is.

    Re: Susie-Q – He loves opera, too, honey. But he only knows one or two songs. Sad, huh? For him and you.
    Now get off the pink site and go listen to some opera. ;)
