Who Will Play Marc?

Masterplan Film Productions Ltd have secured the film rights to Twentieth Century Boy, a biopic of legendary T.Rex frontman Marc Bolan.

Marc Bolan has gone down in history as a cultural icon whose hit singles, fashion sensibilities and stage presence with T.Rex in the early 1970s helped cultivate the glam rock era. He remains one of the most recognisable stars in British music.

The script has been written by first time scribe Susie Kahlich, who worked closely with Bolan’s family to create an accurate and deeply personal potrayal of the legendary star. “This is a long overdue project and we’re really looking forward to finally seeing this get made” says Marc’s son, Rolan Bolan. “We think my dad’s story and his music is important not only to older fans, but appeals to a whole new crop of fans across all generations.”

Bolan’s long time partner, Gloria Jones, feels the time is right for this project. “I see 6-year olds wearing T.Rex T-shirts and dancing to Marc’s music. These young fans only go to show you that Marc was a man of great spirit and integrity, and a child at heart that could speak to all generations. We’re really excited about this film, because while Marc’s story takes place in the past, the man and his music are very relevant to the present.”
