A host of Brit acting talent has boarded helmer Mat Whitecross’ biopic of punk legend Ian Dury. Dury, who was a key figure in the punk movement of the 1970s, enjoyed chart success with songs such as “Hit Me With Your Rhythm Stick.”
Naomie Harris, Ray Winstone, Olivia Williams, Noel Clarke, Toby Jones, MacKenzie Crook and Bill Milner have all signed on to star in “Sex & Drugs & Rock & Roll” opposite Andy Serkis, who plays the polio-afflicted frontman.
Damian Jones is producing and Paul Viragh has written the script. Principal photography begins May 3 in London.
