Marc Bolan film in production
Marc Bolan of T. Rex fame seems the latest singing legend to make it to a biographical film with news coming out that the rights to Bolan's life have been purchased and a film is just beginning.
We just recently heard that Phil Lynott of Thin Lizzy fame is set to receive the film treatment, so perhaps this is starting to mark a trend in Hollywood?
Bolan led the band T. Rex through their rise in the seventies glam rock period, Bolan is credited with bringing that genre to life. He died in a car crash at the young age of 29.
According to the producer, who talks to MTV Movies Blog, Scoot McNairy says that the story will be told through the eyes of his girlfriend who was driving the car when the car crashed and Bolan died. He also says that her unreleased music will tell their story and will look more to their relationship than anything else.
So, who could possibly play Marc Bolan? Any suggestions?
