With all the babymomma drama swirling around Simon Cowell these days, we almost forgot about the upcoming movie he produced!
One Chance is the big screen adaptation of a real-life story success and inspiration; it chronicles Paul Potts' wonderful rise through the ranks of Britain's Got Talent!!!
Originally Katy Perry and Adele were looked at to play Paul's wife, and we're disappointed that never happened, but Paul's character will at least be portrayed by Tony-winning thespian James Corden!
We finally stumbled across the terrific looking trailer and we acn't wait to hear what you think!!!
Ch-ch-check out a snippet from One Chance…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

A transition maybe on it's way.
Katy Perry has been asked to star in a dramatic biopic!!
Hollywood heavyweight, Harvey Weinstein, says he talked to the California girl about playing the wife of Paul Potts, Britain's Got Talent star and focus of the film.
Weinstein dished on his post-Oscar chat with the Pop singer:

Looks like Simon's got ambitious plans for his return to BGT!
Last month, ITV president Adam Crozier confirmed that Simon Cowell would be returning to Britain's Got Talent as a judge, following The Hoff's firing!
Now, Simon has opened up about his return to the show, and he's aiming HIGH this season:

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!
