Iggy Pop Blasts The Stooges Biopics In Pipeline


Singer Iggy Pop has blasted two The Stooges biopics that are currently in pre-production, wishing "they'd both f**k off".

The Gimme Danger rocker is upset nobody has asked him to give his blessing to either film.

Pop - real name James Osterberg - tells website NME.com, "At the moment neither of them have my permission to be made. Frankly, I wish they'd both f**k off and leave their biopics."

However, in June (07) Pop was pleased at the news The Lord Of The Rings star Elijah Wood was being lined up to play him in The Passenger.

He said, "We have no agreement yet but Elijah is a good actor. If he can play a hobbit, he can play me!"

Despite having limited success Iggy Pop is widely regarded as being at the forefront of innovating punk rock.

More recently his album, which was released in 2003, featured collaborations with Green Day and Sum 41.

The same year he re-united woth The Stooges fro the first time since 1974 and have toured together regularly.
