The Bruno star had been collaborating with screen-writer Dan Mazer about the Working Title spoof about a wannabe pop star entering the singing contest.

But The Sun reports a source saying: "Sacha and Dan have been feverishly working on the film for a long time now, they'd completed a lot of preparatory work and had a team assisting them, but they've axed the idea - they felt that it wasn't working."
