Lady Gaga, meet Lifetime.

The cable network is developing a biopic about the pop superstar titled Fame Monster: The Lady Gaga Story.

According to, the project is "a love letter to Gaga" and follows her from age 16 through her rise to fame.

"When we first meet her she is a dark haired, off beat, very talented and intensely ambitious teen," reads the description. "We are seeking an actress who can physically resemble Lady GAGA and who can believably span ages 16 to 22."

Guess that eliminates Gaga's own first choice.

"I would have Marisa Tomei play me," Gaga once told SiriusXM's The Morning Mash Up of the 46-year-old actress. "All my friends call me Marisa when I get angry because my New York accent just flies out of my body."
