Control: The Ian Curtis film
Filming to commence 2005

Update at Sept 24th 2005:
The directors have informed us that Samantha Morton is attached to play Deborah Curtis ... and they are still searching for Ian Curtis, they hope to have him cast very soon. Anton Corbijn loves the script, so does everyone on the project ... including the band and Deborah.

They also tell us Matt did an amazing job contructing the story for the screen, and Anton has come up with a unique way to tell the story on the screen.

Update at May 14th 2005:
The script for Control is now complete, and we can confirm that writer Matt Greenhalgh did spend some time interviewing Annik Honore - along with all the other key characters. According to the directors, the film "dives not only into the book, but into Annik and Ian's relationship, and his time with the band. The movie covers it all"

In an interview with Lee McFadden, Deborah Curtis said "I want the film to be as good as it can possibly be, to explain the kind of problems that Ian was up against. At the same time, the band would want to show the fun times as well. The irony of it is, at that age he should have been having the time of his life being in a band, and he wasn't."

Update: at March 2005
The following bands have reportedly been approached to feature on "Out Of Control" - a CD of cover versions to accompany the film ... U2, Marilyn Manson, Kraftwerk, and Doves. Only Kraftwerk are reported to have said no.

Update at January 16th 2005:
Ian Curtis Film News: Working title is now Control
