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.
