WTF?: Robin Williams To Portray Susan Boyle In A Film Based On Her Life

Robin Williams has been approached to play Susan Boyle in a movie about her life. Movie executives are planning a film detailing her rise to international fame after appearing on Britain's Got Talent earlier this year.

Williams said "I've been asked if I want to play Susan in the movie. I think she's incredible. That clip of her singing on Britain's Got Talent was extraordinary. So inspiring. It was quite a shock when she began to sing. I saw some other clip of her singing Cry Me A River a few years ago. It was incredible. She's got a really great voice."

The recent media craze surrounding Susan Boyle, and the fact a film has been announced so soon after her quick rise to global fame, leaves us here at Flicks News scratching our heads in disbelief. "Why Hollywood, why?"
