Boyle is quoted as saying that she wants George Clooney to play her manager, quipping: "It's wishful thinking. But it's Hollywood... anything can happen."

The 51-year-old singer is said to have signed a deal for the film in the US earlier this week, with filming due to start in 2013. However, it is currently unclear what role, if any, she would play in the project.

Boyle's life story has already been turned into a musical titled I Dreamed A Dream, which premiered in Newcastle earlier this year.

Based on her autobiography The Woman I Was Born to Be, the musical told Boyle's life story from her birth, her time at school, being bullied for her learning difficulties, her decision to perform on stage for Simon Cowell on Britain's Got Talent in 2008 and her subsequent struggle with fame.

Elaine C Smith played Boyle in the musical, but the singer has herself appeared on a number of occasions after the curtain call to perform the song from Les Misérables which began her rise to fame.
