Kate Moss to play Paula Yates?!
Kate Moss is set to star in her first Hollywood film, taking on the role of drug addict Paula Yates.
Model Kate, 32, will play Paula in the run-up to her tragic death, according to the Daily Star.
And Kate's ex-lover Johnny Depp, 42, is reportedly taking on the role of Paula's boyfriend Michael Hutchence.
Film bosses are convinced that the chemistry between Depp and Moss will attract many people to see the movie.
An insider told the newspaper: "It’ll be a chance for her to really prove she can act. And she’ll be spending a lot of time with Johnny again.
"It could work beautifully or be a disaster, but producers want a powerful leading couple."
Kate has made an amazing modelling comeback after allegations of cocaine abuse last year.
Her alter-ego Paula Yates, who was once married to Bob Geldof, led a troubled life which ended six years ago when she died of a heroin overdose aged 41.
Friends said she had never been able to get over the death of rock star Michael Hutchence, who killed himself in Sydney in 1997.
"Paula and Michael were both big drug users and lived a tortured existence," the insider added.
"Turning their ill-fated romance into a film will not make for comfortable viewing."
I find this a little sick. It's far too soon (like those 911 movies) to be exploiting her tragedy. I can just imagine Peaches & Pixie turning up at the premier (in some fabulous outfits) about to watch their mothers dirty laundry aired out for all to see, its just twisted. And Kate couldn't sing for ****, so who's to say she can act? I can't imagine Johnny wanting to be a part of this so Im hoping it's nothing more than rumour.
