Beyonce to play Winston Churchill
Warbling chanteuse Beyonce Knowles has her eyes set on playing pig faced wartime British Prime Minister Winston Churchill in a big budget Hollywood production.
Knowles has been inundating film chiefs with telephone calls and emails pleading with them to cast her in the lead role.
The film, directed by Ron Howard, is set in 1942 and charts the relationship between Churchill and Hitler. The two were reputed to have a secret love affair. Hitler is being played by a relatively unknown Chinese schoolboy. The film is due for release in Fall 2009.
