Trainspotting Actors Battle For Brian Jones


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)
