Joe Strummer Biopic Being Planned

Preliminary news does
not mention a director or lead.

NME.com is reporting this morning that late Clash/Mescaleros
frontman Joe Strummer will be the subject of a biopic, presumably to begin
shooting sometime in 2011. Provisionally titled somewhat awkwardly Joe Public (yeah, yeah, we know all
about the name; it still doesn’t scan well on the printed page), it’s to have
screenwriter Paul Viragh, of the Ian Dury biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll in the mix and will be backed
by the Film4 organization, but nothing else has been announced.

 

How much you wanna bet one of the Twilight dudes starts jockeying to play the part of Joe?
