The film is just the first of a string of projects developing right now that explore the music scene of the late sixties and seventies. Unclaimed Freight Productions is producing a film about CBGB, the famous nightclub frequented by Iggy Pop, Debbie Harry, Stiv Bators and pretty much all the other members of rock royalty. There is also a Rolling Stones film in the works about the making of their masterpiece Exile on Main Street. Harry Styles' name is being tossed around to play Mick, which I think is a somewhat fine choice. Though a bit young to play the musician (who was in his late twenties when Exile was written - keep in mind that Harry is only eighteen), Styles has both the singing ability and that Jagger swagger necessary to play the role -- but I honestly can't think of any young musician or actor competent enough to portray Mick (I'm just a bit protective I suppose).
Personally I wish to see that Marianne Faithfull biopic come to fruition sometime very soon. Her life is so interesting that it would come off well as a narrative, but it has a happy ending which is rare for biopics. But obviously the production on that film hasn't advanced because they haven't the right girl (i.e. me) to play Faithfull.
