The Rolling Stones’ Mick Jagger vs Dylan Thomas biopic

Singer threatens to sue makers of Keira Knightly-starring film

The Rolling StonesMick Jagger has threatened to sue BBC Films, who are behind the forthcoming Dylan Thomas biopic, ‘The Edge Of Love’.

The singer owns the rights to large chunks of the Welsh poet’s works, and is planning a biopic about the man himself through his production company, Jagged Films.

Jagger forced the producers of ‘The Edge Of Love’, which will star Keira Knightly and Sienna Miller, to edit out scenes featuring material from the prose collection ‘Map Of Love’.

“We had access to a few of his Thomas‘ poems,” the film’s director, John Maybury, told The Independent. “Unfortunately Mick Jagger owns quite a lot and he has his own Dylan Thomas film project.

“There were parts of the set where we used elements of ‘Map Of Love’ but we had to CGI them out because Mick threatened to sue if we kept them in there.”
