Celine Dion is the latest superstar to have her life story brought to the big screen. The five-time Grammy winner and her record company have given the green light for French studio Gaumont to begin work on the biographical film “Power of Love.”
Variety reports on Jan. 30 that the project will have a budget of $23 million and is scheduled for a 2020 release date. The biopic will explore the iconic Canadian singer's story, beginning from her humble roots growing up as the youngest child in a family of 14 children in Charlemagne, Quebec to her meteoric rise to international superstardom under the guidance of her manager and future husband René Angéli.
“Power of Love” will feature plenty of the beloved chanteuse's biggest hits like “My Heart Will Go On,” “I'm Alive” and “All By Myself.” Multi-talented French actress, singer and director Valerie Lemercier will both star in the film and direct.
“Power of Love” is scheduled to begin shooting in March. Filming will take place on locations in France, Spain, Canada and Las Vegas.
The multi-platinum seller recently announced a massive one-off U.K. concert, which will take place on July 5 at London's historic Hyde Park as part of Barclaycard Presents British Summer Time concert series. Fans in the U.S. still have a chance to catch the beloved chanteuse during the final run of her hugely successful “Celine” residency, which begins Feb. 26 and wraps up June 8 in Las Vegas at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace.
