Clash Members to Executive Produce Movie About the Clash


It's not often that someone gets to executive produce a movie based on their own life story, but that's what Mick Jones and Paul Simonon of the Clash are planning to do. According to the BBC, Jones and Simonon are in the preproduction stages of a biopic to be penned by playwright Jez Butterworth about the making of London Calling. Hopefully the film will be fairly dramatic, and not just a lot of interminable scenes depicting how the band got just the right guitar tone for "Spanish Bombs." [Pitchfork]
