It’s been 25 years since the first Wilco album, the fiery AM, and it’s an anniversary we felt like...

Just a few days after Brian Wilson was inducted into the UK Hall of Fame, the songwriter has made a deal with “Saving Private Ryan” producer Mark Gordon to start work on a feature length biopic about his life.

David Leaf who has known Wilson for 30 years and previously filmed Wilson for the documentary “Beautiful Dreamer” is also on board to help with the new film.

Rights to use Wilson’s song catalogue has been granted and a scriptwriter is soon to be appointed.

Talking to Daily Variety, Wilson said, “I love the idea of there being a movie on my life, and I can’t wait to see the script.”

Talking about how the film would tackle some of the hard parts of his life, Wilson said, “It’s tough, and when I see the movie I’ll be ill at ease at some of the bad parts. But I remember when we made ‘Pet Sounds,’ and I knew we were up to something spiritual and special. I have that feeling again.”

The producers will take the film package to the studios once the script is complete.
