A film biography that depicts the transformation of Stefani Germanotta into iconic Lady Gaga is reportedly in the works, according to Showbiz 411.
The website reports that Lifetime sent out a casting call for a female lead for a film titled Fame Monster, adapted from Maureen Callahan's book, Poker Face, that's to be filmed in Toronto.
As usual, Gaga is in good company, even with a hastily made TV biopic. In 1994 Fox Television broadcast Madonna: Innocence Lost, which chronicled the early years of the entertainer, whose career Gaga's most resembles.
Here's the description of Fame Monster's leading lady:
"[STEFANI GERMANOTTA (LADY GAGA)] is a bright rebellious Catholic school girl who dreams of fame. The story covers her from age 16 to 22. When we first meet her she is a dark haired, offbeat, very talented and intensely ambitious teen. She comes from a Italian/American well off, close knit, Upper West Side NYC family. She never felt she 'fit in' with her fellow students in high school and was disappointed when her college experience at NYU didn't meet her expectations. So, with her parent's reluctant permission at 19, she drops out and moves downtown to the Lower East Side where the artists are. Independent and strong willed, Stefani learns she must be something more than a talented young girl and to really stand out, she must change. The story covers the ups and downs of her amazing rise and eventually to her transformation to Lady Gaga. We are seeking an actress who can physically resemble Lady Gaga and who can believably span ages 16 to 22. Singing is preferred but not required."
