Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson is behind the film, based on Amy’s life and career.
Production for the film began today.
Amy’s first album, Frank, came out in 2003.
Its 2006 follow-up, Back to Black, became one of the best-selling albums in UK history.
She died of an accidental alcohol overdose in 2011, aged 27.
Rising star Marisa played troubled Yasmin Kara-Hanani in HBO’s Industry as well as starring in Sky’s COBRA.
It comes as Marisa confirmed the news that she would play Amy in the long-awaited biopic a few days ago with a close up snap of the bottom half of her face in full character.
