Following the success of Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman, a Tina Turner film is reportedly now on the way!

And British singer Alexandra Burke will be taking on the role of the legendary pop star in the movie based on the 'Proud Mary' hitmaker's life. 

An inside source told The Sun: "In the film she plays a young musician trying to land her big break just like Tina and will sing some of her most iconic songs. To say Alex is excited is an understatement.

"Alex has got the voice and she showed what a great actor she is as a leading West End actress for the past seven years.

Her big break onto the big screen comes after she previously starred in West End productions of Chicago and The Bodyguard.

It’s believed that the film is aiming for release in 2022.
