Sir Elton film about pop hopeful

Sir Elton John's film company is bringing to life a pop hopeful's tale of record company rejection.

Lotte Mullan chronicled her efforts to make it big, as well as her eye-opening tales of the time she spent working for a record label, in a warts-and-all online blog.

And now, still without her own major record deal, her tale is to be dramatised by Sir Elton's Rock Pictures, which was behind box office hit Gnomeo And Juliet.

Lotte, 27, used her online diary to tell tales of rejection and give an insight into her experiences of the music business, attracting the eye of screenwriter Nick Moorhouse.

The singer, who has also seen her version of Labi Siffre song It Must Be Love in a Lovefilm ad campaign, said: "My original dream was for the big recording contract, but real-life experience can really shatter the dream.

"I never imagined that my blog would be discovered instead. It's even more ironic that a musician owns the film company. My first album was Elton John's greatest hits on cassette in 1989, so it's a huge honour that Sir Elton John's film company is going to make a film based on my life."

Lotte has rejected one offer from a major label and is due to release a single I'm Alright With Me on her own label Raindog Records next month. Her self-released album Plain Jane is out next week.
