London: Music icon and lead singer of rock band The Rolling Stones, Mick Jagger, is planning to make a movie based on rock music.

"Mick has had the script in the bag for years. He has gone back to it again recently and feels now is the time to get it out there. Mick has a few famous comedians in mind to star and is starting to sound them out," thesun.co.uk quoted a source as saying.

"The script is full of stuff from back in the days which Mick and the band witnessed first hand or heard about on their travels," the source added.

Jagger is also reportedly eager to make an appearance in the film based on the plot around rock `n` roll managers in the 1960s. He also wants comedy actors to take the lead roles.

"He`s well up for a cameo role to show he`s not the serious businessman a lot of people think he is all the time. He`s done a lot of comedy appearances on television in the United States and it always goes down well," the source added.
