Alex Turner and Miles Kane writing 1960s set film inspired by ‘X-Men’

The Last Shadow Puppets pair are working on a screenplay together, says Kane

Alex Turner and Miles Kane are apparently writing a 1960s-set film together inspired by X-Men.

The Arctic Monkeys frontman and his Last Shadow Puppets collaborator plan to work on the film before they make music together again.

When asked by Digital Spy about their plans for new music, Kane replied: “It’s something we always talk about y’know? But I think we’re gonna write this film first anyway before we hit back into that,” he said.

Speaking about the screenplay, he added: “It’s gonna have a sort of X-Men kind of vibe and sort of set in the ’60s, but I can’t give any more away than that.” Kane went on to say that neither he not Turner planned to star in the movie, “but we may have a little cameo.”

Turner and Kane released their collaborative album as The Last Shadow Puppets, ‘The Age Of The Understatement’, in 2008. Since then Turner has released three albums with Arctic Monkeys – 2009’s ‘Humbug’, 2011’s ‘Suck It and See’ and last year’s ‘AM’. Former member of The Rascals, Kane released his solo debut ‘Colour of the Trap’ in 2011 and followed it last year with ‘Don’t Forget Who You Are’.
