David Bowie and Iggy Pop Biopic Lust for Life Planned

February 7, 2013


Death of a President director Gabriel Range has signed on to direct Lust for Life, a biopic that follows the creative partnership of music legends David Bowie and Iggy Pop, says a story at The Hollywood Reporter.

Scripted by Robin French, the film is based on a number of biographies, said to include Paul Trynka's "Starman: David Bowie" and "Open Up and Bleed: Iggy Pop."

The story of Bowie and Pop's 1970's British glam rock revoution previously inspired an unofficial biopic in Todd Hayne's 1998 drama Velvet Goldmine, starring Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the Bowie role and Ewan McGregor as the faux Pop.

Range will produce Lust for Life alongside Jens Meurer.
