Trainspotters Reunite For Oasis Boss Biopic
Danny Boyle has come on board as executive producer of Creation Stories, a film based on the life of the legendary founder of Creation Records, Alan McGee. Irvine Welsh has co penned the biopic and Ewen Bremner is on board to play McGee, leading to something of a mini Trainspotting reunion.
Suki Waterhouse, Rupert Everett and Jason Flemyng are also on board.
Given the fact that McGee is the man who discovered and signed Oasis in King Tut’s nightclub in Glasgow, and stuck by Primal Scream and The Jesus & Mary Chain for many a year, it’s not hard to work out what the soundtrack will sound like.
Actor/director Nick Moran – Harry Potter’s Scabior and helmer of the delightful Telstar: The Joe Meek Story – is on board to call the shots, and this is what Welsh had to say about the team-up - "I’ve been lucky to work with both Danny and Nick over the years and to have the two of them together on this project, along with Ewen, feels like a lottery win."
Creation Stories starts filming in London next month.
