Moon role for Myers

Mike Myers is to star as Keith Moon in a movie about the late Who drummer's life.

Who singer Roger Daltrey is producing the as yet untitled film with Nigel Sinclair for Spitfire Pictures, says Variety.

Daltrey and Sinclair have reportedly been working on the Moon project on and off for about 10 years.

But the film is now being fast-tracked and a director is expected to be appointed shortly.

Moon was one of the wildest men of rock and also one of its best drummers. He died of an overdose in 1978.
