Sony Pictures has closed a life-rights deal with Halsey, in hopes of developing a feature based loosely on her life. Born Ashley Nicolette Frangipane, the New Jersey native is a musician, writer, and now actress, with her set to play a small role in the upcoming film A Star is Born. Sony hopes to create a film which emulates the success of 8 Mile, which featured rapper Eminem.
Her latest album, a concept piece titled Hopeless Fountain Kingdom, draws it’s narrative from the Shakespearean tragedy, Romeo and Juliet. Including hits Now Or Never and Bad At Love, Halsey has spearheaded this project through her songwriting and directing the video for the track Alone. Known not only for her music- the artist made an empowering speech during the 2018 Women’s March in New York, in which she spoke of sexual assault.
Halsey is currently in Australia on her world tour which is set to end in September in Europe.
