Amy Winehouse has reportedly been offered her first movie role.

The 'Back To Black' singer would play the part of a music teacher at a problem school, according to The Sun.

"The movie is a bit like Michelle Pfeiffer's film Dangerous Minds. Playing a music teacher will allow Amy to use her singing skills," revealed an insider.

However, the star has reportedly been warned that she has to continue cleaning up her act if she wants the part.

"She needs to improve her health and state of mind, or the opportunity will be withdrawn...It’s hoped the offer will be an incentive for her," said the source.

The 25-year-old has been offered an acting coach from the Royal Academy of Music Theatre Department in London to help her prepare for her screen debut.

The Tudors actor Jonathan Rhys Meyers is apparently being considered to co-star in the Universal project.
