London: Rocker Pete Doherty is all set to make his acting debut with the lead role in a French movie.

The Babyshambles star has been expanding his repertoire away from the music industry recently, having launched his own jewellery line earlier this month.

Now the 31-year-old singer is trying his hand at acting with an untitled project, alongside actress Charlotte Gainsbourg, based on the life of 19th century writer Alfred de Musset, reported Sun online.

"We start shooting in Paris on December 27. The story centres around a love triangle so it`s pretty intense and romantic. I don`t know if I`m a good actor but they say I am," said Doherty.
