Trainspotting’s writer is penning new biopic based on the life of Creation Records boss Alan McGee

Irvine Welsh is penning a movie telling story of Oasis and Creations Record.The movie will tell the story of his hard beginnings in working class Glasgow, through bands like Jesus and Mary Chain and Primal Scream, to his discovery of a little Manchester band called Oasis.

Alan told: “I’ve been friends with Irvine and Dean Cavanagh for a long time – but when I was approached about the movie I still though people were joking.They are genius writers and really cool mother f***ers. I’ve read the first draft and it’s very gritty like Trainspotting but then again my book is gritty – my life was gritty.”

McGee is staying tight-lipped on who will be playing him in the movie which spans his childhood through to selling 60 millions records.
And of course there is no word yet on who will be playing Liam and Noel Gallagher – who are of course a huge part of the story.McGee added: “I’m very excited. From my beginnings to selling millions of records to now having a movie made about me – how can I complain?”
