Boyle & Welsh To Tell “Creation Stories”

Boyle Welsh To Tell Creation Stories

Danny Boyle and “Trainspotting” author Irvine Welsh are re-teaming to executive produce “Creation Stories,” a biopic about music mogul and former Oasis label boss Alan McGee (to be played by Ewen Bremner).

Rupert Everett, Suki Waterhouse, and Jason Flemyng have joined the cast of the film which is penned by Welsh and Dean Cavanagh and based on McGee’s autobiography. Nick Moran is set to direct.

McGee’s Creation Records launched bands like Oasis, Primal Scream and The Jesus & Mary Chain. They sold over 60 million records worldwide and were instrumental in the Brit-pop movement, not bad for a once written-off young Glaswegian upstart.

Filming is set to begin in late May in London with Burning Wheel Productions producing.
