A WALK TO REMEMBER star Shane West has signed up to play GERMS frontman DARBY CRASH in a biopic about the punk rocker's life.

WHAT WE DO IS SECRET, which is scheduled to begin filming early next year (04), will also feature Bijou Phillips, daughter of late MAMAS AND THE PAPAS singer John Phillips.

The film will follow the short, tragic life of Crash, whose Los Angeles band was credited as one of the leaders in the American punk movement of the late 1970s, before his death from a drugs overdose in 1980 (07DEC80).
