Born too loose

(Proto)punk fans, you really are in for a treat. Hot on the heels of Jim Jarmusch's Stooges documentary Gimme Danger will be a biopic on Johnny Thunders, originally of the New York Dolls and later the Heartbreakers. Based on a 1987 biography by Nina Antonia and directed by go-to music video director Jonas Akerlund, the film seems set to trace a familiar narrative arc of ascent to prominence followed by self-destructive decline - unlike We Are X.
