Mick Jagger has been talking about his role in producing a new screen adaptation of the life of James Brown. The cash-rich Rolling Stone will collaborate with Imagine Entertainment filmmaker James Grazer on the still uncast project, Grazer having developed the concept with Brown prior to the soul star’s death in 2006.

Speaking to Deadline about his part in the biopic, Jagger says: “It’s a great honour to be involved with a project as rich as the story of the legendary James Brown. He was a mesmerising performer with a fascinating life”.

Yes, mesmerising and fascinating, indeed.
