Cary Elwes is set to make his directorial debut on a presently untitled biopic of Kit Lambert, the famed rock impresario and manager of The Who.
Lambert discovered The Who when he was trying to make a film about a young London band. He and Chris Stamp pushed Townshend to take The Who into more experimental avenues, the result is seminal rock opera album Tommy,which became the 1975 Ken Russell film.
Pete Townsend and Roger Daltrey have reportedly read Pat Gilbert’s script and will contribute biographical details, while Orian Williams will produce. Shooting aims to kick off late Spring in the United Kingdom.
