Arthur sends the scan from The Hollywood Reporter (May 16, 2014 issue):
Morrissey the Movie
One of the most unique - and oblique - figures in music is about to get a biopic and, like him, a highly unusual one. The unauthorized film Steven - the first name of former Smiths' leader Morrissey - will cover the pre-Smiths life of the depressive poetic bisexual vegetarian, growing up in bleak Manchester, England, and his triumph over an alienated childhood to become the cult star he is today. (The singer, 54, is on tour, playing the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum on May 10.) It will be helmed by Mark Gill, the British writer-director of the Oscar-nominated short The Voorman Problem. Producers include Orian Williams (Control, Big Sur), who clearly has a thing for biopics: His current one is on The Who's late manager Kit Lambert. Shooting will begin on Steven at year's end.

"The film covers Morrissey's life pre-Smiths and is more of a portrait than a conventional biopic," Gill said in a statement. "It's as much a film for non-Morrissey fans as it is for die-hard devotees, but I can't deny that this is a love letter to Steven Patrick Morrissey and the dark satanic mills of Manchester."

Whether Morrissey will be involved with the project is not yet known. The singer did recently share his own take on his life story via a 464-page memoir, "Autobiography," released last year.
...Baldwin Li and Orian Williams are producing the movie, which is scheduled to start shooting later this year. Williams' credits include "Control," Anton Corbijn's 2007 biographical film about Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis, another Manchester musician.
