Mick Jagger to star as Rupert Murdoch-esque mogul in Tabloid?

Might Mick Jagger return to the world of acting? The Rolling Stones‘ frontman and Ned Kelly star has commissioned Oscar nominated screenwriter Josh Olson (A History of Violence) to pen a vehicle for him, based on an original idea by Jagger.

According to Deadline, the thriller is called Tabloid, and would potentially star Jagger as “a global media mogul with dubious morality”.

Considering all the News of the World/phone hacking hubbub in the papers and around the blogosphere at the moment, it’s not too much of a stretch to imagine Jagger’s character would be inspired somewhat by Rupert Murdoch.

Jagger would also produce the pic with Victoria Pearman under his Jagged Films stable.

Discuss: Can you see Jagger as a Murdoch-type tycoon?
