TRAINSPOTTING (1996) and PLUNKETT & MACLEANE (1999) co-stars JONNY LEE MILLER and ROBERT CARLYLE are battling to play BRAIN JONES.
Film producers are making a $15million (£10million) biopic on the life of the late ROLLING STONES star. Film sources say the movie will expose new information about the circumstances surrounding Brian's swimming pool death in 1969.
A film expert says, "The story focuses almost entirely on Jones as a morality story rather than the emergence of the Rolling Stones. "It certainly raises some interesting questions about his relationships with other members of the band." (ES/WNWCAN/KW)
