My Booky Wook Biopic Canned

Crazy big haired funny man Russell Brand has dropped plans to make his chequered life story into a film.The comic says he’s afraid a movie version of his warts-and-all autobiography, My Booky Wook, might tarnish his image with the American public, just as his Hollywood career is taking off.

The film – which was to have been made by 24 Hour Party People director Michael Winterbottom – would have highlighted his drug addiction and sexual debauchery in a way that might not have played will with conservative Middle America. ‘I’m not going to make the Booky Wooky into a film any more because then people in America will learn what my past is like,’ he told MTV News.
