Close friends of the former model, Patrik Simpson and Pol Atteu are set to bring her story to the silver screen and revealed their top choice to play thee Anna-Nicole.

With Patrik telling The Mirror he has “reached out” to Lily about the role, and how they think she is, “amazing…everything she does is brilliant.”

As for why they think Lily would be the perfect choice to play the blonde beauty, he explained they need an actress “to be tall, beautiful, animated and jump off the screen.”

While Pol added, “they have to embody Anna-Nicole’s spirit.”

The pair announced the film back in February, telling Hollywood Life; “We are going to make sure that this does her right because she was not just what the world painted her to be. She was a kind, loving, sincere friend who would do anything for the people she loved.”

Anna-Nicole was a successful model, who featured as Playmate of the Year in 1993, was the face of Guess Jeans, and did campaigns for H&M. She made headlines for her marriage to 89-year-old billionaire J.Howard-Marshall, who passed away 13 months after they were married.
