Biopic to made of Keef Richards ‘Life’ book

Keef Richards, the indestructable Rolling Stones guitar player claims that a film is to be made of his miilion selling and critically claimed ‘Life’ autobiography. Whether a rumnour coming from the lips if Richards are the best source for a story like this is a moot point but there seems to be some sort of truth to this tale.

Richards claims that he’s “in no rush” to get the film made. This is probably not a bad idea, whoever makes the film will need the permisions of aqll the Stones to make the film and it’s not that easy to see Mick Jagger agreeing to a film of the book which runs him down for his behaviour and having a tiny penis.

The Rolling Stones themselves look to be pretty well over and relations between the two key figures in the band are at an all time low.

If Jagger says no it doesn’t leave much of a film- just a few stumbling drug stories and some homely tales of cooking Richards favourite food, bangers and mash…

Still Keef claims the film is being put togther and casting is going ahead to play him- a generation of rock n roll guitar players have already been living the role for years but Johnny Depp has to be the favourite- he wouldn’t even have to change his Pirate chic…
