(Newser) – Viral video sensation Susan Boyle is the talk of the Web—and the Britain’s Got Talent star wants to capitalize on her popularity by writing a tell-all, the New York Post reports. Boyle, whose agent is reportedly shopping the book, may be disappointed when she hears what one publishing exec told Crain’s: “She has a story, but it’s a short story.”

If Boyle can’t sell her book, she might feel better knowing that Catherine Zeta-Jones wants to play her on the big screen, the Daily Mail reports. “This is one of many requests we have had to play her, for movie deals and for stories of her life,” a Britain’s Got Talent source says. “All these people want to be associated with her. She is the biggest thing in the world.”
