Joe Strummer

[lastfm]Joe Strummer[/lastfm], the leader of rock legends, [lastfm]The Clash[/lastfm] may soon have his life adapted for movies. While starring in several documentaries and even acting in a few movies, this will be the first time the movie-going audience gets to see Strummer’s life unfold.

Directors Julien Temple and Don Letts have already paid homage to the great Clash frontman with documentaries, Joe Strummer: The Future is Unwritten, but British film company, Film4 just announced the beginning stages of this new project.

The film has been tentatively titled Joe Public. Paul Viragh has been called on to write the story. This is probably due to the success of his last movie Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll, the story of Ian Drury, another influential man in British punk rock.

Tell us, what actor would you like to see play Joe Strummer in the biopic?
