Everyone's favourite psychos Billy Zane and Grace Jones tipped to star in Morrison musical...

A stage musical inspired by the poetry of Jim Morrison is set to open next year and Billy Zane will star as a Morrison alter ego called ‘The Stranger’, inspired by the late Doors frontman’s poem ‘The Celebration Of The Lizard’.

According to US website SonicNet, the surviving Doors will act as creative consultants on the stage musical being produced in San Diego which will also star Grace Jones as ‘The Lizard Lady’.

Meanwhile Ray Manzarek will play keyboards with the reformed Cult on a version of ‘Wild Child’ which is being recorded for a forthcoming Doors tribute album. There are no details about the other bands involved.

Who will appear in the London west end production? Gary Wilmott and Bonnie Langford? Michael Flatley and Sarah Brightman? Tell us what you think. Post a message on Angst!
