Talks in place to have Angelina play Nigella Lawson in new movie


Nigella hasn’t had much luck lately, but if news of a new movie is anything to go by, things may be looking up.

According to reports, the 54-year-old’s life may be turned into a movie, with Angelina Jolie as frontrunner for the lead role.

“Angie had planned to take a lot of time off next year but this role is very tempting. She has been gripped like everyone else by all the drama surrounding Nigella these past few months and thinks she is a remarkable woman.”

The last few months have been chaotic for the domestic goddess and shocking to fans, so the film would make for some interesting viewing.

The British TV chef split from her husband, Charles Saatchi, at the end of last year after he was photographed with his hand around her neck. After that story broke, she then then had to deal with rumours of drugs and abuse. Most recently, the celebrity chef had to endure a trial, which saw her former assistants, Elisabetta and Francesca Grillo, accused and cleared of fraud.

If Angie does take up the role, we’re sure the movie will be big, but if not, we can’t see it being a box office hit.
