Katy Perry Heading To The Big Screen?!

Katy Perry might be making  her big screen debut sooner than later. Harvey Weinstein approached the blue-haired singer at a pre-Oscar party to possibly star in a new movie about British opera singer Paul Potts. Katy would play Potts’ wife, Julie-Ann Cooper…the English mobile-phone salesman who became a singing sensation after winning Simon Cowell’s “Britain’s Got Talent” in 2007.” Katy seemed really interested according to the NYPost, she said, “I love a challenge.”

Harvey later told the Post, “I was talking to Katy about a new project, a possible dramatic role in the Paul Potts movie, which will be shooting in England soon. We’d really like someone like Katy or Adele to play the role of Potts’ wife, and Katy seemed genuinely interested.”

Katy  is also working on a new album and is currently writing new material,

“It’s a very therapeutic thing for me, songwriting. I’m kind of one of those people who is a bit emotion-less on the outside, especially in public, but what I do is I store it, and I file it, so when I need to write I can just push that button,” she explained. “I’m going to stick my finger out there and test the waters of what the world wants, or what I need to say … but, I’m all ears. If people want me to do another pop record, I can do another pop record … I definitely have a lot to say right now, and in general always have. If you want an opinion, I’ve got one, unfortunately.”

When Katy does go back in the studio she plans to go back her her musical roots,

“I just think that it’s time for me in some ways to show where I came from.I’ve always just been me and my guitar; and I’m not saying I’m going to make that record, but I do want to get back to my roots. I’ve been changing my hair color too much!”
