Ian Curtis' biopic coming soon

A film on Joy Division and Ian Curtis has been announced. Called Touching From A Distance, the film will be based on a book by his widow Deborah. Thankfully, it will be an "inside" production, as Deborah Curtis and Tony Wilson (Factory Records head/Manchester music svengali) will executive produce the film. Anton Corbijn, who's made some great videos for Depeche Mode and U2, will direct (his first feature film outing). I hope this turns out to be just as good as 24 Hour Party People.
