Blogging singer gets a film deal

A struggling singer has landed a film deal to tell of her battle to find success - before even releasing her debut album.

Lotte Mullan, 25, has been recording her experiences in a blog which became cult reading and attracted the eye of a literary agent.

Now her frank entries about her efforts to find a deal, and love, are to form the basis of a film after impressing producer Nick Moorcroft, who has scripted films such as St Trinian's and Burke And Hare.

Lotte is expected to rake in more than £1 million as a result of the deal to bring to life her online diary. It will tell of her encounters while doing part-time work experience at one of the world's biggest labels, Warner Bros Records, as well as a stint at Sony.

Despite building contacts in the industry she was rejected by firms and formed her own label, recording her album, making videos on an iPhone and booking her own gigs.

Her self-promotion led magazines such as Mojo and Q to review the early version of her album, which has now been revamped for another release next month.

Agent Julian Alexander, of the LAW agency, read her blog and signed her as a promising author. Then Moorcroft got on board, describing the proposed film as a music industry-based meeting between The Devil Wears Prada and Bridget Jones's Diary.

Mr Alexander said: "Lotte has an original voice that works as well on the page as it does in song."

Delighted Lotte said: "I'm overwhelmed. My diary was just something I did as therapy. It's an account of me chasing the dream. It's all the highs and lows that can happen when you choose to do something that you love for a living. The fact that this could be a Hollywood blockbuster is beyond my comprehension."

A book will also be published next year.
