Keith Moon passed away 44 years ago last Wednesday, September 7th, 1978. Roger Daltrey also updated fans on the status of his desire for a movie about the late Who drummer.
Daltrey said, "I can't give you an announcement yet, but there's one gonna be very shortly. I've co-written a screenplay [and] we're in talks with a very reputable film company that are gonna make it. We haven't got a director attached but I know when a right director for this picture reads the script he will fight to make this film. I'm incredibly optimistic about it and we have something very, very special."
Daltrey has wanted the movie made for nearly 30 years. Actor Mike Myers was once considered to play the lead role in the proposed movie. Keith Moon died of an accidental drug overdose in 1978 when he was only 32 years old.
