Will someone please tell me why I'm not in bed yet. And I have to go to work tomorrow!!

ourdramaqueen mentioned this and asked if anyone had the mag. Sure enough hubby came home with his Mojo tonight:

ROCK FILMS STARRING ...

1. ELIJAH WOOD AS IGGY POP

Written and directed by film-maker Nick Gomez (OZ, The Sopranos), The Passenger will focus on Iggy's tempestuous phase fronting The Stooges. "You could say its my musical debut" reckons Wood. "The script is wonderful, but then the reality was that I'd have to portray him, which was frightening". And may involve nudity.

Please note - the last four words are NOT part of Elijah's quote, but written by the Mojo author:)

The article also mentions that no-one has yet been cast for the Ian Curtis film.

I feel like a dirty old lady.

Join the club!! If he does this film - and there is nudity involved - he's going to leave a trail of expired mature fans in his wake!!

I have so much research to do before that film comes out. I've only barely heard of Iggy Pop, and know nothing about him or his music. I think I missed the whole era of "punk" music!

But if Elijah's in it...

:D

When this was first mentioned some time ago, I had no idea who IP was - I'd probably heard the name but just knew nothing about him - didn't even know if he was alive or dead!! I was never much into punk either:)

nudity, Nudity, NUDITY!!! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!

*ahem*

Also, interesting that no one has been cast for Ian Curtis yet. I just assumed they'd already finished filming it. Hmmm, very interesting. I wonder what the problem is there?

Yep. Nudity.

There was a bit more about the Ian Curtis film but I'm at work at the moment & can't remember what it said. If its anything of interest I'll let you know:)

"Portable Defibrallator" - a very good idea - perhaps we should tell the manufacturers to start getting more stocks in right now!!

Why is young Mr. Wood speaking in the past tense? This is still happening? I hope...

"You could say its my musical debut" reckons Wood.

Do you suppose that means that we'll find out once and for all if he can SING? Actually, I'm much more interested in that than I am in seeing him in the altogether.

D'ya suppose there's something wrong with me? *looks at rushing water all the way up to my rear* Or maybe I'm just in DeNial?

Hi to all, Pauline espec.!
I´ve found this article just now, I´m so affraid about destiny of Gomez´s project, really I doubt he starts with shooting...
IGGY POP is refusing to have anything to do with his biopic after learning LORD OF THE RINGS star ELIJAH WOOD is to play him in the project.

The punk icon has nothing against the actor, but he thinks it would be a terrible idea to get involved in his own movie life story.

He says, "The script ain't chopped liver... It was a work of art. But subjectively, I don't want to be involved in any way.

"A producer and the writer sent me a very decent letter, and asked me to write back if I didn't want them to do it... I don't feel negative about it at all."

Iggy Pop admits that, like many, he was "curious" about the casting of Wood.

He adds, "I don't really know about him... I saw him on TV the other day, and he seems like a very poised and talented actor."

That's no surprise about Iggy's disinclination to be involved. He's said as much as twenty years ago "I do not want to be biographised." It shouldn't be any impediment to making the film, since it sounds like he rather admired the script. And really, it'd be a bit egotistical of him to want to be involved IMVHO.

I think Elijah can do this. I think there's every potential that he's gonna blow our socks off! Mr. Gomez must have seen something promising indeed in Elijah's audition, or he'd not let "Frodo" anywhere near his pet project.

My only reservations are if I personally wish to see Elijah acting out the more sordid details of Mr. Pop's rather scandalous existence.
