Mick Jagger may play a media mogul in Tabloid, a new film he is developing through his Jagged Films production company. The movie, which is being penned by A History of Violence screenwriter Josh Olson based on an idea by Jagger, will tell the story of a Rupert Murdoch-like mogul and a young journalist who is brought into the inner circle of his immoral media empire.

Tabloid would be Jagger's first starring role in a movie since he appeared in The Man from Elysian Fields with Andy Garcia and Julianna Margulies back in 2001. The Rolling Stones frontman has starred in a handful of pictures over the course of his career, most notably as a former rocker in the 1970 movie Performance.

Song Stories

“Hungry Like the Wolf”

Duran Duran | 1982

This indulgent New Romantic group generated their first U.S. hit with the help of what was at the time new technology. "Simon [Le Bon] and I, I think, had been out the night before and had this terrible hangover," said keyboardist Nick Rhodes. "For some reason we were feeling guilty about it and decided to go and do some work." Rhodes started playing with his Jupiter-8 synth, and then "Simon had an idea for a lyric, and by lunchtime when everyone else turned up, we pretty much had the song." The Simmons drumbeat was equally important to the sound of "Hungry Like the Wolf," as Duran Duran drummer Roger Taylor stated it "kind of defined the drum sound for the Eighties."
