Well, we had the Creation rockumentary last year – the rather good ‘Upside Down’ – and now plans are apparently afoot for a Creation biopic.

The legendary label’s founder Alan McGee has told the Daily Record he is in talks with a “big film guy” about making a film based on the rise, peak and decline of his former record company. McGee: “The big film guy I’m meeting is a good guy. He’s good for a laugh and is interested in talking to me about making a feature film about Creation”.

He continued: “It’s a film about some lunatic who runs a label that ends up making millions of pounds. Actually there are two movie ideas – a druggie one and one that’s more serious. Maybe we can make one that combines both”.

By the way, if you’ve not seen the ‘Upside Down’ Creation doc yet, well you should do. And a number of screenings in the UK and Ireland have been announced, with screenings in the following cities on the following dates:

22 Feb: Glasgow
17-25 Feb: Dublin
11 Apr: Stornoway
1-7 May: Sheffield
19-21 May: Liverpool
