Ian Dury Biopic In Works

Andy Serkis is working on a biopic about music legend Ian Dury.

Serkis told Cinema Blend that he begins shooting the project about the punk singer in April.
"I'm actually doing a film about the life of Ian Dury, who's a proto-punk rocker in the 1970s"

"He's an amazing character, a real poet."

"He sort of came up out of the British pub rock scene. He sort of pre-empted the Sex Pistols and the whole punk movement. And he was a polio sufferer, so he basically didn't have much use of his left leg or his left arm. He was one of the first disabled punk rockers ever. I'm really looking forward to that."
