Two years later and we're still saddened by the tragic death of Amy Winehouse, but it looks like we might finally have a chance to see a side of her we've never seen before.
Filmmaker Asif Kapadia has teamed up with producer James Gay-Rees and Universal Music to put together a documentary about the late soul songstress and they will be shopping it to foreign buyers at this year's Cannes Film Festival!
The two have worked together before on 2010's Senna and said they were excited to capture the chaos and turmoil of singer's life:
"Amy was a once-in-a-generation talent who captured everyone's attention; she wrote and sung from the heart, and everyone fell under her spell. But tragically, Amy seemed to fall apart under the relentless media attention, her troubled relationships, her global success and precarious lifestyle. As a society we celebrated her huge success, but then we were quick to judge her failings when it suited us."
There aren't too many details on the untitled project yet, but it will apparently be using some never-before-seen archival footage that we can't wait to see.
We still love and miss Amy very much and we're so glad to see she's being remembered.
