Stop press.....scrap that it's here! July 2017 ...
The news that the Morrissey biopic has had it's name changed from "Stephen" to "England Is Mine" has reminded me that the film was being made in the first place.
First mentioned in 2014 the film directed by Orian Williams and not authorised by its subject, concerns itself with Morrissey's years before he met Johnny Marr and formed The Smiths. Jack Lowden pictured above is reportedly to play the Morrissey that meets Marr at the end of the film.
The film still has no release date, and it occured to me that would Morrissey's fans - who are mainly devoted to the point of fanatical... go and see a film without his blessing anyway?
Morrissey is certainly not short of fans, his Mexico City show last month sold all 21,000 tickets in 2 days!
I might stick to the autobiography available on penguin classics... (i think he insisted..) I'll let you know what I think.
