New Amy Winehouse Biopic In The Works, With Winehouse’s Parents Serving As Executive-Directors

Posted on by

first_imgThe Guardian reports that a new Amy Winehouse biopic is on the way. Amy Winehouse’s family has reportedly signed a deal to make a biopic about the late singer taken far too young. Monumental Pictures’ Alison Owen (Lily Allen’s mother) and Debra Hayward will produce the film, with Winehouse’s parents serving as the film’s executive producers. Amy’s life story will be written by Geoff Deane, and shooting for the biopic is due to start in 2019. Proceeds from the film will benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation.Mitch Winehouse, Amy’s father, said the family had previously been approached regarding a biopic but previously felt the time was still not right. In a statement, Mitch Winehouse said, “We now feel able to celebrate Amy’s extraordinary life and talent. And we know through the Amy Winehouse Foundation that the true story of her illness can help so many others who might be experiencing similar issues.”On July 27th, 2011, London Ambulance Service was called to rising-star singer Amy Winehouse‘s Camden flat. Unfortunately, the medics were too late—Winehouse was found dead, having succumbed to her arduous battle with drug and alcohol abuse at just 27 years old. Though she released only two albums before her death—2003’s Frank and 2006’s Back To Black–her work on the two releases catapulted her to worldwide success and recognition. Back To Black netted the singer five Grammys (including Best New Artist, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year) in 2008, tying the record for most wins by any female artist in a single year at that time.Winehouse’s tragically brief career was defined as much by her remarkable talent as it was by her struggles to keep her life together offstage. From an early age, she dealt with a litany of health issues, from drug addiction to alcohol abuse to eating disorders. These problems were only intensified as she saw her popularity and notoriety increase. As Winehouse explained to The Telegraph in her last interview before her death, “I’m not a natural born performer. I’m a natural singer, but I’m quite shy, really…You know what it’s like? I don’t mean to be sentimental or soppy but its a little bit like being in love, when you can’t eat, you’re restless, it’s like that. But then the minute you go on stage, everything’s OK. The minute you start singing.”[H/T The Guardian]last_img read more

Conte blames himself after another Inter Milan collapse

Posted on by

first_imgExasperated Inter Milan coach Antonio Conte blamed himself after watching his team collapse again on Sunday, almost certainly ending their Serie A title challenge.“There’s a great, indeed enormous, disappointment,” said Conte whose side were leading 10-man Bologna when they missed a second half penalty kick. They went on to concede twice to go down 2-1 to late goals by Gambian pair Musa Juwara and Musa Barrow.“We managed to lose a match that we should have brought home comfortably. I’m angry with myself as the coach and responsible for what happens on the pitch,” said Conte, whose side had taken a first half lead through Romelu Lukaku.“The players must also be angry with themselves, although they only have a small part of the blame.”Inter Milan, who have a habit of making life difficult for themselves, led the table in the early part of the season.But they have now dropped 11 points behind leaders Juventus with eight matches to play. There was a long delay before Conte spoke to the press and some Italian media reports said he was involved in a meeting with club directors.“It’s right to question all of us. First of all me, because I was called to bring Inter Milan back to victory after so many years,” he said.“Of course, it won’t happen overnight but this situation brings a lot of bitterness.“We have not reached the standard we set ourselves. Everyone has to show they want to rise above the past years, otherwise it’s right to make other decisions.”Bologna coach Sinisa Mihajlovic was happy with the result but also frustrated that his team, who are ninth, took so long to get going. “We were poor in the first 20 minutes. We were afraid and there were too many wayward passes,” he said. “We really looked a completely different team in the second half.“It wasn’t easy to be a goal down with 10 men. This is a great victory, with character and conviction.“However, we’ve sometimes waited to concede before we start to play. That’s not okay, we need to play from the off.”Reuters/NAN.RelatedPosts Pirlo not out to copy anyone after Juventus’ comfortable opening win Vidal lands in Milan to complete move from Barca to Inter Live stream Premier League, La Liga, Serie A on Showmax Pro this weekend Tags: Antonio ConteInter MilanSerie Alast_img read more

Kentucky’s John Calipari tops list of best ‘agony faces’ for college basketball coaches

Posted on by

first_imgFrank Martin, South CarolinaWhy he’s here: Yes, Martin is known for his anger and death-stare on the sidelines, but his “agony face” is highly underrated (everywhere but here!). Despite what it might seem just watching Martin stalk the sidelines on TV, he is, first and foremost, a players coach. And as a players coach, he feels the disappointment of a stunning, painful loss as much as his players. Bruce Weber, Kansas StateWhy he’s here: Like most coaches, Weber has never seen a call against his team that he’s agreed with. So there’s a difference between Exasperated Weber and Agony Weber, even if that difference is hard to discern sometimes. But Agony Weber has more pain in his eyes than Exasperated Weber, and K-State, Illinois and know the difference well. Bob Huggins, West VirginiaWhy he’s here: The things we said for Martin fit Huggins well, too.  Because, folks, no coach in college hoops does the “agony face” quite like John Calipari. You know what I’m talking about. It’s that look that combines elements of “I can’t believe that just happened” with “I’m completely heartbroken for my players” with just a dash of “My life will never be OK again” sprinkled in, just for good measure. And for Calipari, it’s really and truly a work of art. MORE: Evansville’s upset of No. 1 Kentucky sends clear message to top programsNot every coach has an “agony face” in their expression arsenal for when things aren’t going well. For some, like Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski, there is only simmering, intense rage. For some, like Virginia’s Tony Bennett, there is only stoicism — good luck trying to guess the score by his facial expression. For some, like Kansas’s Bill Self, the look is mostly surprised disgust. And for some, like Iowa’s Fran McCaffery, there is fuming rage that borders insanity (and far too often, rage that steps over the border). But we’re not talking about those expressions today. Today, we’re looking at 10 of the best agony faces in college hoops. There’s no official ranking — apparently the Fagan Agony-Face Misery Index formula wasn’t approved by Sporting News editors — but just 10 coaches who aren’t afraid to let their disappointment show on the sidelines.  (Getty Images) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/60/38/martin-weber-huggins-111419-ftr-getty_rhn60fgu5xst1irgw5di13ycl.jpeg?t=1800718374&w=500&quality=80 (Getty Images) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/66/fc/pearl-boeheim-sampson-111419-ftr-getty_1xwv9ca3yjdn615nrip1qkyjao.jpeg?t=1800767966&w=500&quality=80 Kentucky, as you probably know, lost at home to Evansville in one of the biggest college upsets in If you weren’t watching the game, or didn’t happen to be keeping tabs on the score, but just happened to scroll past a certain picture of Wildcats coach John Calipari on Twitter, you probably knew something awful had happened on the court to the top-ranked Wildcats. Tom Izzo, Michigan StateWhy he’s here: Izzo does rage well — his you-must-die stare is among the best — and he does elation well, too, making him a five-star coach emoter on the sidelines. Roy Williams, North CarolinaWhy he’s here: It was a little difficult to find an agony picture of Ol’ Roy that would fit in our extreme-vertical three-picture splits, because so very often the agony is accompanied by Williams bending over and grabbing his knees because he can’t believe what just happened. Mike Brey, Notre DameWhy he’s here: Brey’s a favorite to watch, and not just because he’s part of the anti-tie crew. As much as any coach out there, you really feel like he wants to be out there on the court with his players, and those emotions show on his face, win or lose. center_img (Getty Images) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/41/b5/williams-izzo-brey-111419-ftr-getty_13u0sr5zj8sd01uoo4ffsofvzo.jpeg?t=1800606374&w=500&quality=80 John Calipari, KentuckyWhy he’s here: There’s a reason Getty Images has thousands and thousands of pictures of Calipari in its library, and it’s not just because he’s the coach at Kentucky. Calipari makes no attempts to hide his emotion of the moment, good or bad. He’s the best. Here are the others … (Getty Images) https://images.daznservices.com/di/library/sporting_news/ab/a5/john-calipari-111419-ftr-getty_4wsukgt93ma151ue2qqx1aod.jpeg?t=1800637838&w=500&quality=80 Jim Boeheim, SyracuseWhy he’s here: No coach in college hoops can say more with folded arms than Boeheim. Mostly, he’s just disappointed you’re not being better at the thing you’re supposed to do — that goes for referees, players and fans — but sometimes, there’s genuine pain that things aren’t going well for the players he cares for. Bruce Pearl, AuburnWhy he’s here: Auburn fans don’t really need a scoreboard, they just need to look at their coach’s face to know how the game’s progressing. Safe to say, there wasn’t much of the “agony face” during Auburn’s run to the Final Four last spring. Kelvin Sampson, HoustonWhy he’s here: The picture speaks for itself, doesn’t it?last_img read more
