Mick Jagger planning comedy film with David Bowie
Tim Clark11 April 2011
It might just be the most roll'n'roll comedy news story of the year so far, reports have come in that Mick Jagger and David Bowie are set to go-ahead with a comedy film that they have been writing for the last 15 years
The two legendary rock singers have been thinking about putting together a comedy film ever since they started writing down anecdotes of what they saw and heard about from living the Rock‘n’Roll lifestyle.
The new film will revolve around a pair of rock managers in the 1960s and Jagger is now looking for comedy talent to fill the roles in the film, and also keeping a cameo spot available for himself.
According to The Sun a newspaper source said: "Mick has had the script in the bag for years. He has gone back to it again recently and feels now is the time to get it out there.
"The script is full of stuff from back in the day, which Mick and the band witnessed first hand or heard about on their travels."
Jagger reportedly decided to go ahead with the script for the film after seeing fellow rock legends Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney appear on Comic Relief.
**UPDATE: Unfortunately this rumour was squashed after we published the story by David Bowie himself, but we can still dream.
