Keating To Play Islam In Movie

Irish singer RONAN KEATING's fledging quest to launch a successful movie career has been dealt a major boost - courtesy of his FATHER AND SON collaborator YUSUF ISLAM.

Muslim convert Islam - formerly CAT STEVENS - teamed up with Keating to cover his 1970 track last year (04) and has since formed a strong friendship with the ex-BOYZONE hunk.

Having experienced fame once again after years out of the limelight, Islam is now eagerly working on a big screen musical of his life story - and he wants Keating to play him.

Islam says, "I like the guy. He is immensely talented and he wants to move into acting."
