Roger Daltrey has doubled-down on making the Keith Moon biopic, despite failing to do so for the past dozen years. During his online chat with fans, Daltrey spoke about a broad range of topics — including the long-promised film about the ill-fated — some say lunatic — Who drummer, who died of a drug overdose in 1978 at just 32-years-old.

Metro.co.uk reported Daltrey told fans, “I will do the Keith Moon film and that will be the antithesis of Bohemian Rhapsody. And I haven’t seen Rocketman but I saw Bohemian Rhapsody and I thought Rami Malek deserved what he got. He did a great job with a really thin script.”

He went on to explain, “I am definitely making the film about Keith when I get the right script. I don’t want to make a biopic, I want a drama where Keith is the central character. I never met anyone like him in my life and I don’t think I ever will, and you should all be grateful for that. He was wonderful but dangerous and very frustrating. He was an uncontrolled genius, completely out of control.”

‘You wouldn’t want a film about me, there isn’t a rating low enough. You wouldn’t want that,’ he joked about the band’s hedonistic lifestyle. ‘I will do the Keith Moon film and that will have a low rating to, that will be the antithesis of Bohemian Rhapsody. And I haven’t seen Rocketman but I saw Bohemian Rhapsody and I thought Rami Malek deserved what he got. ‘He did a great job with a really thin script.’

During his recent appearance on Britain's The One Show, Roger Daltrey touched up on his desire to make a film that captures the essence of Keith Moon: “I want to make a movie about Keith — I don't wanna make a movie about the Who — and I do not wanna make a biopic. I want to make a film to try and really capture the complexities of Keith Moon. Because a lot of people think they know about him and they obviously know about these funny exploits; but there were so many sides to Keith Moon. He was fearless, he was crazy — every part of his personality was in excess.”
