Morrissey: il biopic

519

Il nuovo album è alle porte (leggi), i probabili singoli svelati, così come la possibile copertina. Il 2014 è l’anno di Morrissey (si spera), tanto che a Los Angeles viene inaugurata la mostra fotografica “Moz Goes to Hollywood: Morrissey/The Smiths”, opera del celebre Kevin Cummins che ha fotografato Morrissey e gli Smiths per oltre 30 anni (guarda). Tra una celebrazione e una polemica, tra una notizia e un’anticipazione, la EMI “tira fuori” la nuova foto promozionale dell’artista inglese che lo ritrae serioso in bianco e nero. Ma non è finita perchè l’Hollywood Reporter svela che è in cantiere un biopic “focus on the depressive poetic bisexual vegetarian”. Il film sarà diretto da Mark Gill, già noto per il corto nominato all’Oscar “The Voorman Project”, con la produzione di Orian Williams che viene ricordato per aver lavorato a “Control” (Ian Curtis). Ecco il testo integrale dell’articolo.

Morrissey the Movie
One of the most unique – and oblique – figures in music is about to get a biopic and, like him, a highly unusual one. The unauthorized film Steven – the first name of former Smiths’ leader Morrissey – will cover the pre-Smiths life of the depressive poetic bisexual vegetarian, growing up in bleak Manchester, England, and his triumph over an alienated childhood to become the cult star he is today. (The singer, 54, is on tour, playing the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on May 10.) It will be helmed by Mark Gill, the British writer-director of the Oscar-nominated short The Voorman Problem. Producers include Orian Williams (Control, Big Sur), who clearly has a thing for biopics: His current one is on The Who’s late manager Kit Lambert. Shooting will begin on Steven at year’s end.
