Mitch Winehouse to start work film about Amy soon

Mitch Winehouse will start work on his film about Amy Winehouse "fairly shortly."

The father of the late 'Rehab' singer has revealed he is hard at work sorting out the logistics of a celebration of her life but teased he has a wider vision as well as just a movie.

He told BANG Showbiz: "We hope to start work fairly shortly on it. But it's going to be more than just a film. Amy created a range of dresses for Fred Perry, she created six seasons, I don't know how she managed to do it but she did and they're still selling, they're selling very well, and people don't really know that kind of side of her, that creative side. There's more to Amy than just the singing and everything else."

The taxi driver criticised director Asif Kapadia's film about the star, 'Amy', when it was released earlier this year and wants to include more of the people who were close to her in his own film so fans can get a more realistic insight into who she was as a person.

Asked who will be involved, he explained: "Namely all of Amy's friends, who weren't in the film. And Reg [Traviss], you know Reg was her boyfriend? You wouldn't think so. All of the people who weren't in the film are hopping mad. They want their voices to be heard. We don't want to be like Asif, we'll let people say what they want, but we don't want it to be negative. We meet at least every month: Amy's dearest friends, Reg, and me, and we sit there, and the stories that we tell are brilliant. People don't realise everybody's got 100 stories about Amy, and that's the kind of thing that we're going to try and do."
