Died on January 12, 2022, the American singer Ronnie Spector will soon come back to life on the big screen in the guise of Zendaya. The actress also paid a nice tribute to the interpreter of Be My Baby at the announcement of his death.
An emblematic figure of The Ronettes, Ronnie Spector died on January 12 at the age of 78 following cancer. But before her death, the singer had several times been able to talk with the actress chosen to play her in a biopic devoted to her life produced by A24 and New Regency: Zendaya.
The one who is still showing the huge cardboard Spider-Man: No Way Home in the cinema and who is also illustrated on the small screen in season 2 of Euphoria was, according to variety, personally selected by the bad girl of rock to play her in her as yet untitled biopic which will center on her beginnings in the world of music.
On Instagram, Zendaya paid a moving tribute to the star at the announcement of his death. “This news breaks my heart. Talking about her as if she weren’t with us seems odd because she’s so incredibly full of life. There’s not a single moment I’ve seen her without her iconic red lips and thick hair, a real rockstar to the core”, she wrote.
And to continue:Ronnie, getting to know you has been one of the greatest honors of my life. Thank you for sharing your life with me, I could listen to your stories for hours and hours. Thank you for your unparalleled talent, your unwavering love for the show, your strength, your resilience and your grace. There is absolutely nothing that can dim the light you project.”
“I admire you so much and am so grateful for the bond we share. You are a magical force of greatness and the world of music will never be the same. I wish everyone had the chance to know you like I did. We celebrate your beautiful life and give you all the flowers you so deserve. Rest in peace Ronnie. I hope to make you proud”, she concluded.
No release date has yet been announced for this feature film.
