Scorsese Gets Stoned On New Jagger Film Project
Rock veteran Mick Jagger is about to try his hand at the movies once again. The Rolling Stones frontman will try his hand at writing a film script about a pop star and the "Machiavellian world of hit-making."

Jagger has teamed up with acclaimed Hollywood director Martin Scorsese, who will eventually make the film. Scorsese, of course, was the original editor of the acclaimed documentary "Woodstock," and went on to direct The Band and others in "The Last Waltz."

"It is an insider's look at the music business and the Machiavellian world of hit-making," said a spokeswoman for the singer's movie company, Jagged Films. "I imagine he will bring his own experiences to bear, but it will be a work of fiction. Just like his love life."

She said it was far too early to say who would star in the film, which is provisionally titled "The Long Play."

The movie is being billed as a no-holds-barred expose of the pop world and Jagger, famed for his philandering ways and hedonistic lifestyle, certainly has the inside track on excess. Jagger had previously appeared in such films as "Performance," "Ned Kelly" and "Freejack" and had penned several screenplays.

This is just one of a number of projects being developed by his production company, which is also planning a biopic about the life of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas and his wife, Caitlin. The first feature to be finished by Jagged Films will be an adaptation of the Robert Harris thriller "Enigma" about the battle to break German secret codes in World War II. The second is slated to bea documentary about how old Charlie Watts really is.
