Will Joe Strummer biopic be the right profile?

Screen Daily, a site that requires you to subscribe to read their content so I had to find this out via The AV Club, announced Monday that filmmaker Paul Viragh is working on a Joe Strummer biopic. Viragh recently made an Ian Dury biopic called Sex & Drugs & Rock ‘N’ Roll starring Gollum, which I have yet to see partially because I only first heard of it moments ago while reading the AV Club article and partially because I'm not that interested in Ian Dury. The Strummer film is currently going by the title Joe Public and will no doubt detail Strummer's rise from the unglamorous hardships of being the son of a foreign service diplomat to the time he danced around his living room with Mick Jones while first hearing "White Riot" on the radio to his inevitable bouts with grotesque self absorption and drug addiction. Because, you know, it's a rock biopic.
