Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner to co-write superhero film

See also

Arctic Monkeys frontman, Alex Turner, and Miles Kane, best known as the co-frontman of The Last Shadow Puppets are teaming up to create a superhero film similar to that of "X-Men." The Last Shadow Puppets was a side project formed in 2008 consisting of Turner, Kane, and composer/producer, James Ford. Kane revealed in an interview with Digital Spy that while their group is something the pair "always talk" about, right now their focus is writing the film.

The Last Shadow Puppets released their debut album, "The Age of the Understatement," in April of 2008 and it went straight to number one in the UK Albums Chart. The record represents influences of The Beatles and late 60s progressive rock as evident in the album's second single, "Standing Next to Me." Check out the music video above.

Kane, also formerly of The Rascals, has been pursuing a solo career and his second solo album tilted, Don't Forget Who You Are," was released in June of 2013. As of now, the British duo have no plans to be in the film other than a small cameo, but with Turner's Midas Touch he should consider being as much a part of this project as possible, both in front of the scenes and behind it.

Turner tried his hand at film scoring when he teamed up with Richard Ayoade in 2010 to create the soundtrack for the British movie, "Submarine," so perhaps writing a screenplay will be a piece of cake. Both Tuner and Kane are currently on tour in support of their most recent albums which means there will be some time before the superhero flick is spawn.
