Cheryl Cole being pursued by Hollywood chiefs

Girls Aloud voice is reportedly being lined up for leading roles

Cheryl Cole is said to be being pursued by Hollywood studio chiefs desperate to capitalise on her recent The X Factor fame.

Legendary producer Harvey Weinstein is among those after her signature after the singer spent a four-day stint at the Cannes Film Festival, reports the Daily Mirror.

“I want to put Cheryl Cole in one of my films,” he declared. “I’ve heard all about her – she is getting a lot of buzz in the States with US X Factor. She’d sure make a great leading lady. She has a very interesting life story, I’m told.”

Weinstein, famous for his boisterous manner, has had a hand in producing some of the biggest films of the past two decades including Pulp Fiction, Chicago and most recently The King’s Speech.

The Girls Aloud singer-turned-The X Factor-judge caused a media storm in a low cut dress at the Cannes première of Habemus Papum, an Italian film about a newly elected pope and his therapist.

Cole’s one credited film performance so far is as ‘School Band Member’ in 2007’s St Trinian’s.
