A24 is nearing a deal to acquire the Amy Winehouse documentary “Amy,” a person with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.

Directed by Asif Kapadia, the film chronicles Winehouse’s life and career, including archive footage of the late British singer. It will also feature previously unheard tracks from the late British singer.

A24 is currently planning to release “Amy” on July 3 in the U.K. Focus International handled worldwide sales, while James Gay-Rees produced the film.

Winehouse exploded onto the scene in 2006 with her chart-topping album “Back to Black,” which sold more than 20 million copies worldwide. It also featured the hit single “Rehab.” The album won five Grammy awards, including Best Vocal Pop Album.

Behind the scenes, Winehouse struggled with drug and alcohol addiction. She died from alcohol poisoning in July 2011.

Cinetic Media negotiated the deal on behalf of the filmmakers.
