Mariah Carey wants Leona Lewis to play her in a musical of her life, reports.

The Touch My Body singer has reportedly agreed to see her story immortalized in a stage show in New York’s famous Broadway district and is said to be particularly keen to have the British star take on the lead role.

A source said: “Mariah’s not sure if she’ll star in it herself. If she doesn’t, names being tossed around include High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens and Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria. But Mariah secretly likes the idea of Leona Lewis playing her.” A spokesperson confirmed to Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper: Mariah is in talks for a Broadway musical to be made about her life in 2009.
