There’s no denying Halsey’s empire has grown to mammoth proportions over the last year. With top selling albums, huge collabs and sold-out tours under her belt, her influence as not only an incredibly talented musician but as a whole-heartedly inspiring human being is slowly reverberating throughout a world that needs a defiant, confident voice to lead.
In short – pretty much everyone wants to bask in her glory in the hopes that just a tiny fraction of her grace will rub off. As reported by Deadline earlier this morning, Sony Pictures are the latest entity to want
The film house has apparently just closed a life rights deal with Halsey, with the intention of producing a film loosely based on her life story, which she’d star in. Halsey has openly discussed the trials and tribulations of her adolescence and the beginnings of her career in music – experiencing it unfold in cinemas to inspire others would be the ultimate triumph. Halsey, during her short but powerful time in the spotlight, has been an outspoken advocate for women’s rights and suicide prevention so hopefully, the film covers this important aspect of her artistry as well.
Palak Pate, who produced Snow White And The Huntsman, Maleficent and more, is overseeing the project which is set to be similar to Eminem’s famous biopic 8 Mile. Most information surrounding the film is currently under wraps, so keep your eyes peeled for more updates to come over the next few months.
Back in March, Halsey tweet that she’d be taking some time out from touring to film a movie for two months – which we can now definitely guess has a lot to do with this recent announcement. It was also announced that she’d be making a short appearance in the upcoming Bradley Cooper directed film A Star Is Born.
I’m filming a movie for 2 months. I haven’t announced all the shows yet. I’m sorry you guys reacted with so much contempt, I’m going to a lot of countries I’ve never toured in before and also going back to day 1 fans in other countries too. https://t.co/DtBz3VUkz7
