The Passenger is an upcoming movie biopic about Iggy Pop's early career and The Stooges era. The film will be directed by Nick Gomez. It will start shooting within the next six months and is expected in theatres sometime during the summer of 2008. The movie's budget is in the $6 million to $8 million range. Elijah Wood will star as young Iggy Pop.

Wood revealed during an interview that he is "scared to death" of doing it, because he is a huge fan of Iggy Pop and he doesn't want to be the "person responsible for screwing that up." He also said the movie will chronicle The Stooges era, for the most part.

Iggy Pop liked the script but refused to take a part in the film, He said:

“ The script ain't chopped liver... It was a work of art. But subjectively, I don't want to be involved in any way. A producer and the writer sent me a very decent letter, and asked me to write back if I didn't want them to do it... I don't feel negative about it at all. ”

Iggy also said that Elijah seems like a very poised and talented actor.

Is that recent, Colin? I heard that it had gone onto the back burner since the Variety announcement?? There is apparently talk of a rival biopic, by Penelope Spheris, too.
