Katy Perry's life coming to the movies

Los Angeles - Katy Perry's life is set to be turned into a Hollywood movie.

The One That Got Away singer - who split from husband Russell Brand in December - is to be the subject of a biopic by Oscar-winning producer Brian Gazer, who wants to tell her life story on the big screen.

The film will follow Katy's transformation from preacher's daughter to the sex symbol pop star she is today.

Sensitive subject

However, her 14-month marriage to British comedian Russell looks set to be airbrushed out of the film as it is a "sensitive" subject to her religious parents, Keith and Mary Hudson.

Brian, 60, has produced a string of hit movies including A Beautiful Mind and Apollo 13.

As well as having her life made into a movie, last month it was announced Katy was being turned into a computer game character.

The singer will appear in new PC game, The Sims 3 Showtime, which will be released in March.

Fans will be able to play as Katy in their games and obtain Katy Perry-themed goodies in the latest offering from the strategic life-simulation video game.
