Iggy Pop Biopic Scrapped – But He Wants Lindsay Lohan To Play Him!
Plans for Elijah Wood to play Iggy Pop in a new movie about The Stooges have been shelved – and you can blame Iggy himself.
“It’s nothing against Elijah, and the script was OK, but they sort of wanted me to jump out of cakes and do promotional things and I didn’t really want to get involved. (Plus), I didn’t think it was time for someone else to tell our story because, inevitably, it’s not just my story, it’s everybody I worked with.
“When I’m dead then people can do that to me (make a movie). If somebody did want to make a biopic of me, I think they should get Lindsay Lohan, actually. She looks like me and she’s the only one with enough attitude, too. They could tape her boobs up or something. She’s been in jail at the right age and everything, so I thought she could do it.”
However, there are plans in hand for a documentary about Iggy, being directed by Jim Jarmusch.
