Sex Pistols director to make 'The Kinks: The Movie'
A movie about British band The Kinks is set to go into production.

Tentatively titled 'You Really Got Me', the film is set to explore the rocky relationship between bandmates and brothers Ray and Dave Davies.

Directed by the film and music video director Julien Temple, who has previously directed documentaries about Sex Pistols and Glastonbury, Ray Davies will be involved in the project.

"At the heart of it is the extraordinary love-hate relationship between these two brothers: love/hate, sibling rivalry is at the core," Julien Temple told Screen Daily. "I think it's a very rich social, cultural nexus around The Kinks. Their story is the untold story of all those big bands of the 1960s."

The cast for the film or a potential release date is yet to be announced.
