Pete Dohertys next piece of recorded work is going to be a remake of John Cages 433, so it looks like the next time youll actually get to see or hear him do anything may be in his upcoming movie. Yes, you read that right. Contact Music is reporting that the 31-year-old frontman of Babyshambles and The Libertines is set to star alongside fellow musician Charlotte Gainsbourg in a film based on the life of 19th century dramatist, poet, and novelist, Alfred De Musset.
The film is still untitled, and Doherty says hell start filming in Paris on December 27th. While were a little upset that he gave up his gig as a jewelry maker to try acting, were actually more worried about the poor best boy wholl be in charge of keeping the ex-Mr. Kate Moss out of trouble because for his part, Doherty seems a bit confused as to how he landed the role. I dont know if Im a good actor, he told the UKs Sun, but they say I am. We dont know who they is yet, but we sure cant wait to see the results.
