Shaun Ryder’s biopic still in pipeline despite creative dispute

A few years ago a news was released that Holly had been cast as Shaun Ryder’s girlfriend on a Shaun Ryder’s biopic. Unfortunately it was never done, yet there’s still hope!

Shaun Ryder’s biopic is still in the works – but its makers need new backers.

In 2019, it was revealed that ‘Skins’ actor Jack O’Connell, 33, was to star as the Happy Mondays and Black Grape frontman, 61, in the flick ‘Twisting My Melon’, but director Matt Greenhalgh got himself into a creative disagreement with the movie’s US funders and they now require more funding to get the project off the ground.

Shaun told Classic Pop magazine: “Matt Greenhalgh wrote the script and was gonna direct. So we got the money, half-English, half-American and Matt fell out with the Americans. They didn’t want to make the film that Matt wanted to make. They wanted to make a film like all those other biopics, so it had to have a certain bit of this and a certain bit of that. So the American money went and it all went (messed) up really.”

Matt’s still working on getting it made, so that’s where he is now. He’s actually just done the Amy Winehouse film (‘Back to Black’, which he’s scripted, but is directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson) and I think he’s done about three or four movies since we started getting this one made. So at the moment, he’s just looking for another lot of backers.”

Filming was due to commence in Shaun’s native Manchester in 2020. The film will be based on his autobiography of the same name, which charts his life, his music, and his part in the Madchester scene.

Other names swirling around the film include Jason Isaacs, who would play his guitar-playing father, Derek, nicknamed ‘Horseman’. Maxine Peake is in talks to play Linda, Shaun’s mother and Holliday Grainger is in discussions to play Shaun’s girlfriend.

Tom Burke and Holliday Grainger return in BBC’s Strike – The Ink Black Heart

001.jpg 002.jpg

Tom Burke and Holliday Grainger are returning for the next instalment of Strike – The Ink Black Heart, the sixth (4×60) story of the BBC’s hit crime drama in co-production with HBO and Warner Bros. Discovery and based on J.K. Rowling’s best-selling crime novels written under the pseudonym Robert Galbraith.

When frantic, dishevelled Edie Ledwell appears in the office begging to speak to her, private detective Robin Ellacott doesn’t know quite what to make of the situation. The co-creator of a popular cartoon, The Ink Black Heart, Edie is being persecuted by a mysterious online figure who goes by the pseudonym of Anomie. Edie is desperate to uncover Anomie’s true identity.

Robin decides that the agency can’t help with this – and thinks nothing more of it until a few days later, when she reads the shocking news that Edie has been tasered and then murdered in Highgate Cemetery, the location of The Ink Black Heart.

Robin and her business partner Cormoran Strike become drawn into the quest to uncover Anomie’s true identity. But with a complex web of online aliases, business interests and family conflicts to navigate, Strike and Robin find themselves embroiled in a case that stretches them to their limit.

Strike is one of the UK’s most watched dramas, with the most recent instalment – Troubled Blood – averaging 8.4 million viewers across its run in 2022 (28-day figures).

Strike – The Ink Black Heart is adapted for the screen by writer Tom Edge (Vigil, You Don’t Know Me) who also adapted previous Strike instalments Troubled Blood, The Silkworm, Career of Evil and Lethal White. Jenny van der Lande (Too Close, You Don’t Know Me) is story producer and Alex Rendell returns as producer. Executive producers are J.K. Rowling (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Strike, The Casual Vacancy), Neil Blair (Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, Strike, The Casual Vacancy) and Ruth Kenley-Letts (Too Close, Strike, You Don’t Know Me) alongside Nick Lambon for the BBC.

HBO has North American rights and Warner Bros. is selling the show internationally. The previous five series of Strike are available to stream on BBC iPlayer.

Cormoran Strike is one of the most popular detectives in crime fiction today and JK Rowling as Robert Galbraith is among the genre’s most celebrated writers, shortlisted for the prestigious CWA Gold Dagger in 2015 and the Theakston Old Peculier Crime Novel of the Year in 2016. The Cuckoo’s Calling was published to critical acclaim in 2013 and went on to be a global bestseller, followed in 2014 by The Silkworm, Career of Evil in 2015, Lethal White in 2018 and Troubled Blood in 2020. The Ink Black Heart was published in August 2022 and the most recent novel, The Running Grave, was published in September 2023.

All seven Strike novels topped the national and international bestseller lists and the series has sold in total more than 20 million copies worldwide across all editions. Troubled Blood won the 2021 British Book Award for Book of the Year: Crime and Fiction. The books are published in more than 50 countries across the globe and to date have been translated into 43 languages.

JK Rowling’s BBC Detective Series ‘Strike’ To Begin Season 6 Shoot This Month; HBO Back On Board

EXCLUSIVE: Cormoran Strike and Robin Ellacott are back in business as cameras are set to roll on Season 6 of JK Rowling‘s Strike later this month.

Deadline hears that the BBC and HBO detective drama will begin principal photography on February 12, with Tom Burke reprising his role as a war veteran turned private detective. Holliday Grainger is also back as Strike’s business partner.

The BBC is yet to confirm the Season 6 renewal, but is expected to make an announcement later this month. Brontë Film and TV, the company established to adapt Rowling’s books, is producing. HBO is back on board after co-producing Season 5, with Cinemax involved in previous seasons.

Season 6 will adapt The Ink Black Heart, which has echoes of Rowling’s own experience of being caught up in the culture wars. It centers on the murder of a successful YouTube animator after she becomes the target of relentless online hate.

On Wednesday, Rowling posted a picture of the Strike: The Ink Black Heart episode one script on Twitter, now known as X. It was penned by Tom Edge, who has written on the past four seasons of Strike. “It’s been a fun day,” Rowling said.

Seven Strike novels have been published under Galbraith’s name, with the most recent book titled The Running Grave. Rowling said on X that she was “getting on very well” with the eighth novel.
