Amy Winehouse's dad has ruled out the chance of a Hollywood film being made about the late star.

There had been rumours that the singer's life might be given the big screen treatment, but Mitch Winehouse said he isn't keen on the idea of a biopic about his daughter.

He told Digital Spy: "I don't really want to do a biopic, but there's a documentary film from the same people who did Senna coming out next year."

Mitch suggested a memorial gig might be a more fitting tribute to Amy, who died of alcohol poisoning in 2011 at the age of 27.

Speaking at the annual Amy Winehouse Foundation Ball at London's Dorchester Hotel, h e said: "A concert would be amazing, but it's actually getting it together with the [record label].

"It sounds great in theory, but in practice it's not so easy. We are talking about it though."
