Let no one ever tell you that your life story is too insignificant for the big screen: Deadline reports that pop star Halsey is getting the biopic treatment, and will likely play herself in the film. Sony Pictures has acquired her life rights and is said to be positioning Halsey as a movie star with a film about her origin story that’s being pitched as her own version of Eminem’s 8 Mile — you know, minus Detroit, battle rapping, and dudes shooting themselves in the leg, we assume. But it won’t be her film debut: She also reportedly has a small role in Bradley Cooper’s A Star Is Born. Halsey’s biopic will recount her life growing up biracial in New Jersey, becoming an icon to the Tumblr generation, the launch of her career, and her personal struggles, likely including her battle with endometriosis. Did we mention she’s only 23?
