Roger Daltrey Involved In New Keith Moon Biopic

Roger Daltrey is taking on a role in the upcoming biopic of late Who drummer Keith Moon. The singer released a statement, saying he is excited to bring some life to the project, which has recently suffered neglect.

"The Keith Moon project is one close to my heart, so I am excited to reinvigorate it," Daltrey said.

A film executive connected with the project added that Daltrey was bringing some much needed passion to the production, which has been in limbo for about four years.

"I am a massive Who fan and consider Keith Moon to be the greatest rock drummer of all time," the exec said. "I could feel Roger's passion and detailed perspective for this unique story after our first phone call."

There's been no word yet on a casting decision for Moon or any other of the band members.
