Ian Curtis biopic 
According to the Metro newspaper's 'Cannes Diary', Moby is "executive producer of a biopic about Joy Division singer Ian Curtis, who committed suicide in 1980. There's no script as yet but the musician's main role will be to oversee the soundtrack".

Moby has previously played Joy Division tracks in his live sets, most notably New Dawn Fades. There's no word on casting yet but time will tell whether Sean Harris, who played Ian in 24 Hour Party People to great acclaim will get the nod. As for a release date, May 2005 would be the 25th anniversary of Ian's death.

Thanks to AJ for spotting. (How I don't miss getting the Metro now I cycle to work...)
