London, (ANI): Heather Mills wants Reese Witherspoon to play her in a biopic.
Sir Paul McCartney"s estranged wife is currently in the US to plan a Hollywood movie about her life.
And, she"s picked the Oscar winner to step into her shoes.
A source revealed that Mills has been working for some time on her biopic and that plans were shelved when she thought that she and Macca would be reaching a settlement in their bitter divorce battle.
However, with Macca"s side not giving in to Mills" demand of settling an amount by Friday, Oct 19, the animal activist has now flown to the US to work on the movie.
"Heather has been working for some time on the biopic. Of course it had all been shelved while she thought they were heading for a settlement," the Daily Mail quoted the source, as saying.
"But the script was dusted off pretty rapidly over the weekend. She had wanted Heather Locklear to play her. She now feels someone with slightly more credibility like Reese Witherspoon should play her. Heather wants an unknown to play Paul.
"Heather sees this film as the tragic and empowering story of her life - a young model who gets run over and loses her leg, overcomes her difficulties and marries her prince. But the most interesting part of the tale will be the dark goings on between the couple behind closed doors."
On Friday, Mills flew to New York to arrange an interview with US chat show host Larry King.
She is also lining up an appearance with talk show queen Oprah Winfrey, and is expected to appear on the new season of U.S. TV hit 'Dancing with the Stars" as a guest star.
