Iggy Pop Refuses To Take Part In Biopic

IGGY POP is refusing to have anything to do with his biopic after learning LORD OF THE RINGS star ELIJAH WOOD is to play him in the project.

The punk icon has nothing against the actor, but he thinks it would be a terrible idea to get involved in his own movie life story.

He says, "The script ain't chopped liver... It was a work of art. But subjectively, I don't want to be involved in any way.

"A producer and the writer sent me a very decent letter, and asked me to write back if I didn't want them to do it... I don't feel negative about it at all."

Iggy Pop admits that, like many, he was "curious" about the casting of Wood.

He adds, "I don't really know about him... I saw him on TV the other day, and he seems like a very poised and talented actor."

a movie about the life of iggy pop? don't make me laugh. do they really think, now would be a goo time? maybes because hollywood needs a happy end, and iggy seems to be doing fine these days, and not stir up too much trouble?!elijah whatshisname seems an obvious choice, he looks like iggy justprestooges album pics, witht he curly hair.i guess.to me, a movie about the life of marc bolan, starring johnny depp (ofcourse) would make more sense.the world could really do with something nice and fairy. any producers, bolan heirs or johnny reading this? i got the script half-ready.
