British chef Nigella Lawson has had a dramatic few months, having divorced her husband Charles Saatchi and becoming embroiled in fraud trial against two former assistants.
Producers have reportedly made the 38-year-old actress their number one choice to play the TV chef who recently divorced husband Charles Saatchi and was accused of taking cocaine in a court case.
“Angie had planned to take a lot of time off next year but this role is very tempting,” an insider on the project told The Sun.
“She has been gripped like everyone else by all the drama surrounding Nigella these past few months and thinks she is a remarkable woman,” the source added.
Angelina Jolie is reportedly tempted by the role.
The movie would follow the rollercoaster life of “The Taste” star, who is now 54.
It would also reportedly include the $ 1.1million fraud trial that saw her two former aides cleared. It also saw Lawson admit having taken cocaine.
It’s unclear when the movie would be released, but another insider said it was being touted for next year.
