Paramount Pictures is in works to develop a feature film based on the unlikely overnight success story of Paul Potts, the wannabe tenor who sold cell phones until he won ITV's Britain's Got Talent in 2007.

According to Variety, Simon Cowell, who created the show and as a judge was stunned by Potts' prowess, will produce the film with Relevant Entertainment's Michael Menchel and Steve Whitney.

The studio acquired life rights from Potts, who quickly recorded a debut album, "One Chance," that sold 3 million copies. He also is headlining 65 concert dates in 13 countries.

No word on when production begins.
