Susan Boyle's life story is to be turned into a film, it has been confirmed.

The Scottish singer, who found fame during the 2009 series of Britain's Got Talent and has gone on to find success in both the UK and US, will have her life story told after sealing a "megabucks" deal according to The Sun. The paper reports that Boyle wants George Clooney to star in the film as her manager. "It’s wishful thinking. But it’s Hollywood… anything can happen,” the paper quotes her as saying.

Earlier this year, as rumours of the film first emerged, Boyle told The Mirror that she would like to see British actress Julie Walters play her in the film adaptation of her life. "We are in the middle of negotiations just now for a film about my life. There’s only one person I’d love to play me – and that’s Julie Walters. She would do the job and you just know she would do my story justice," she told the publication. "The success I’ve had is surreal and unbelievable. I never expected to be able to do a tenth of what I’ve done. But now I’ve done it I just want to do everything and take every opportunity that comes my way."

Meanwhile, Susan Boyle became the victim of an unfortunate spot of social networking naivety last night (Nov 20) as her record label tried to promote her new album 'Standing Ovation' on Twitter. Boyle's PR team encouraged fans of the singer to tweet about the album using the hashtag #susanalbumparty which, as you can see, is easily mistaken for "anal bum party", a topic unlikely to feature in Susan Boyle's music, but one which soon sent the tag trending.
