“There have been scripts made from a lot less than Susan’s story which by any standards is remarkable," Gerry said. “I would not be surprised in the least if there was a film made of her life and I would personally like to see Kathy Bates play my sister. Other British actresses like Brenda Blethyn would also be great and I just hope they get Brad Pitt to play me!"

While Pitt may be a bit of a pipe dream, Boyle is hoping his sister's success will spill over to the rest of the family. He's currently establishing the venture which encompasses business, banking, and insurance. For now, the Boyle's are looking forward to a nice holidays at home.

“Susan is planning to be with her family over Christmas and New Year and it will be great to have her home with us over the holidays,” he added. “If an unknown woman from a small town in Scotland can go on to become the biggest selling artist in America then anything is possible. We are all very proud of Susan and her dream really has come true with these fantastic CD sales."
