David Bowie and Iggy Pop’s golden years are set for the big screen
Todd Haynes fantasized about the unlikely friendship and collaboration between David Bowie and Iggy Pop through his fictional "Velvet Goldmine." But now the filmmaker Gabriel Range is directing a biopic about the glam rock duo's time together in the mid- to late 1970s in West Berlin, according to the Guardian. Range, best-known for his movie about an imaginary assassination of George W Bush, is working from a screenplay by Robin French, reports the Hollywood Reporter. French, a TV writer for the BBC3's sitcom"Cuckoo," has tentatively titled the film "Lust for Life," basing the screenplay largely on Paul Trynka's Bowie and Pop biographies, "Starman" and "Open Up and Bleed."
