Amy Winehouse fans who got PO’d seeing Marisa Abela in costume for the biopic most likely aren’t gonna enjoy with this most current upgrade, ’cause it’s still looking a little … off.
TMZ acquired pictures that were gotten in London Sunday afternoon, where the starlet was in complete costume depicting the late vocalist. As you most likely understand by now, Marisa was tapped to play Amy — however individuals online are weeping nasty, stating it’s a total miscast.
Considering the huge quantity of criticism early set pictures gotten in the previous couple of weeks, you may’ve believed the studio would make a tweak or more to Marisa’s makeup or something — however alas, as seen in these photos, they’re advancing with what they got here.
Unclear what sort of scene they were shooting precisely — however eyewitnesses inform us it appeared like Amy’s onscreen father, Eddie Marsan, was dropping her off at a rehabilitation center. That would make good sense … this film is concentrating on Amy’s increase to popularity in the early aughts, when she was still living in London. By then, she’d currently been utilizing compounds, alcohol and otherwise.
The reaction over Marisa’s casting is most likely to continue as the motion picture moves along in production — honestly, MA looks absolutely nothing like Amy … and while the genuine Amy Winehouse’s own dad states it’s not a big deal at all, that’s most likely not gonna calm the diehard fanbase.
It’s a bit unusual everybody’s so riled up over the truth Marisa’s not a dead ringer for Amy. Truth be informed, Hollywood’s been in the practice of casting stars who do not always look precisely like the renowned artists they play, specifically of late. Austin Butler omitted, naturally.
Waiting for your approval to fill the Instagram Media.
Plus, ya gotta think of that the manufacturers — who are dealing with this with a true blessing from Amy’s estate — wish to do her tradition justice … so a little trust goes a long method for this sort of thing. As they state, it’s not constantly about the appearance — however, more so, the essence.
Bottom line … Marisa still has the possible to wow everyone, so we’ll simply need to wait and see what comes of the efficiency when ‘Back to Black’ ultimately strikes theaters.
In the meantime, release all your Lady Gaga fancast dreams, individuals — coulda, woulda, shoulda … however it isn’t so. Give Marisa an opportunity!
