A biopic on the life of iconic singer Celine Dion is in the works. Titled Celine Before Celine, the film will be helmed by Quebec-based director Marc-Andre Lavoie, who will trace Celine Dion’s journey before global stardom.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the English-language biopic is going to go on floors for a 2020 production.

Celine Dion’s nephew Jimmy Dion has signed on as a screenwriter. Lavoie will reunite with producer Adrien Bodson after they co-wrote the 2017 Quebec comedy Innocent.

“In my entire career, I’ve never met someone as kind, warm and authentic as Celine, and we’ll be forever grateful that she believes so strongly in our team to tell the real story as it’s never been told before,” Lavoie said in a statement.

Celine Dion got her education to sing from the “soul” thanks to the late Aretha Franklin, who taught her music comes from “deeper than the heart”.

The “I’m Alive” singer, in a letter to the director and Bodson, said she was “touched” by the film the duo were planning.

“With your unique approach, you managed to seize the essence of a period that is very dear to my heart,” she wrote.

A separate Dion biopic, titled The Power of Love named after her hit song, is set for a release in 2020.

The development comes a week after ICM Partners dropped the Canadian-born singer as a client, after she could not pay commission on her concerts coming from a deal signed in 2017.
