A new biopic about The Clash‘s late frontman Joe Strummer is in the works.
Film4 is backing the project, entitled Joe Public. Screenwriter Paul Viragh, who wrote Ian Dury biopic Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, will be in charge of the script, reports Screendaily.com.
No-one has been cast to play the lead role yet.
Strummer was the subject of Julien Temple‘s 2007 documentary Joe Strummer: The Future Is Unwritten and Don Letts‘ recent film Strummerville.
