The tragically curtailed life of JOY DIVISION's lead singer Ian Curtis is being made into a film - by American dance star Moby.

The PLAY star is a big fan of the seminal post-punk British band, who became New Order following Curtis' suicide in 1980.

Manchester-born Joy Division members Bernard Sumner, Peter Hook and STEPHEN MORRIS are all thought to have given the film the go-ahead.
