Russell Brand confirms film plans
Well what do I know? Russell Brand was on the Jonathan Ross show on BBC1 last night and he was asked about his autobiography My Booky Wook (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com) and the prospects of a film, and he was full of confirmations.
However typically Brand the conversation went over the top so I'm not really sure how much of this is true, but it does seem as though Michael Winterbottom will be directing a film of his autobiography to date.
As I've said before I hate the practice of lower list celebrities bringing out biographies and autobiographies when they've just passed a third of their life isn't something that interests me whatsoever, however it's clear from the people that hit back at me that some are, and it looks like they'll be even happier with this news.
So he confirmed that there is a film going to be made and that Michael Winterbottom is directing, now what I was unsure about is what he talked about next. He said that he's playing himself in his “later” years – by later I mean his thirties.
I know Brand fans will be happy, but I just can't get into biographies and autobiographies that are pitched by people younger or the same age as me, and I'm not half way through my life – touch wood.
