"Dreamgirls" star Jennifer Hudson is being eyed by Missy Elliott to portray her in a Hollywood biopic about the rapper.

Able to display her singing knack in "Dreamgirls", Jennifer Hudson may go rapping in her future starring vehicle as well.

The Oscar winner reportedly has caught the attention of rapper Missy Elliott who is keen to have the actress played her in a Hollywood feature about her life, being thought by the "Work It" singer to be the perfect one to take on the life account of hers on the big screen.

"Being as she's a heavier-sized artist, she is in the same lane as I was when I first came out," Elliott said. "She'd be closest to me."

Hudson, a former "American Idol" finalist, beat out over hundreds of professional singers and actresses for the role of Effie White in "Dreamgirls" which finally brought her to be named best supporting actress at this year's Academy Awards. She next is slated to appear on ensemble drama "Winged Creatures", Rowan Wood's film adaptation of Roy Freirich's debut novel about survivors of a brutal restaurant murder.
