Oscar-nominated moviemaker Mark Gill is working on a big-screen biopic of outspoken rocker Morrissey. The Voorman Problem director plans to chart the childhood and pre-fame years of the former The Smiths frontman in the movie, which has the working title 'Steven', the singer's first name.

Few details of the project are available and it is not known if any actor has yet been cast as the singer, but Gill is planning to start shooting the biopic at the end of this year (14), according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Producers of the planned movie include Orian Williams, who has previously worked on Control, the story of tragic Joy Division frontman Ian Curtis, and is also producing a biopic of The Who's manager Kit Lambert.
