Oh dear God. No disrespect to the woman but this is getting bloody ridiculous now.

"enduring appeal"........
I read further into the article, because I assumed that this was setting me up for some hilarious gag, but it turns out it was actually serious.
Does anyone want to know more about the attention-lusting numpty dumpty that hasn't already been forced on them thanks to news starved media? I seriously doubt it!

I can't think of a bigger insult to a woman than to contact her and say she would be perfect for the role of Susan Boyle.

I presume it'll need to be an 18 certificate if they include scenes from #susanalbumparty

I'm calling Philip Seymour Hoffman for the lead role now.

After his song and dance routine in The Master, I'm pretty confident he could do a SuBo.

Would you watch it if it was in 3D?

This is the most absurd film idea I've heard all year. Congratulations Fox you've just made my day worse!

How on earth will they pad this rubbish out? Surely it will just jump staright to Simon Cowell saying how she originally applied for a record deal, was not deemed "x-material" and therefore was placed on Bitains Got Talent to win one of his fixed and pointless television shows so he could get even richer by ripping off hard working Britions (although those who stump up money money for those shows will get no sympathy from me). (I do not wish to be overly disrepectful, but I have to make this point....) At least the censors won't have to worry about sex scenes!!!!!

Monstercat: I've never said that 3D makes a bad film good. I just think that complaining about 3D is infantile when you have the choice between 2D and 3D. I subscribe to the 'just don't buy it' way of thinking. So, if this film IS in 3D I still want to be buried alive, but I'll happy put on my 3D specs first. If it's 3D IMAX, then bury me alive with my 3D specs in a really, really big hole.

It's just that way you tackled those anti 3D opinions that rubbed me up the wrong way.

You were being disrespectful and you just can't go that way with it.

Not going to take offence at this, but this is exactly what I'm talking about.

The real question is whether or not we'll have a black Susan Boyle.

The Michael Jai White for SuBo bandwagon starts here...

Wow, what's up with all the hate here?! Not that I'm interested in Susan Boyle's career or anything, but this "biopic" sounds like it might have a story, something in the sense of a poor housewife from some English town, living in poverty and then getting her big break after a small audition, or whatever. Nothing that we haven't seen before, but I can see that happening. I doubt there would've be as much negativity if it was the same biopic without Susan Boyle's name on it. But yeah, whether it was a good decision or not to choose Susan's name for the film remains in question.
