After recently announcing that the team had assembled for the upcoming Alan McGee biopic Creation Records, we’re very happy to share the first look at Burning Wheel Productions official images from Creation Stories, written by Irvine Welsh and exec produced by Danny Boyle.
These shots feature Ewen Bremner, who we think is superb casting, who plays McGee, as well as a behind the scenes look at one of the sets with Director Nick Moran. We also heard from McGee himself recently that he’s intrigued by what’s to come, especially with Welsh and Boyle involved, as it’s an adaptation of his autobiography ‘Creation Stories – Riots, Raves and Running a Record Label’
There’s also new additions to the cast, including (Hello!) Jason Isaacs, comedian Ed Byrne as well as Paul Kaye, Perry Benson, Thomas Turgoose, Steven Berkoff, Rufus Jones and Mel Raido. They join previously confirmed castmates Bremner and Suki Waterhouse. Leo Flanagan (Hanna, Waterloo Road) has been confirmed to play young Alan McGee in his feature film debut.
From leaving school at sixteen to setting up the Living Room club in London, showcasing emerging indie bands, from managing The Jesus and Mary Chainto co-founding Creation at 23. He brought us My Bloody Valentine, House of Love, Ride and, of course, Primal Scream. Embracing acid house, Alan decamped to Manchester, and hung out at the Hacienda, taking Creation into the big time with Primal Scream’s Screamadelica. His drug-induced breakdown, when it came, was dramatic, but climbing back to sobriety, he oversaw Oasis’ rise to become one of the biggest bands in the world.
