“There’s a project — and it’s true Adele is attached — but it’s in an early stage of development,” a studio executive said to The Daily Mail‘s Baz Bamigboye.
The biopic would likely focus on Springfield’s move to Memphis and subsequent work with Atlantic records producers in 1968. That time yielded Dusty in Memphis and her breakaway hit “Son of a Preacher Man.”
Adele’s camp hasn’t commented on the development, but Adele and Springfield’s sounds are quite similar. It could be a phenomenal casting choice!
