Writer ALAN PARKER has been recruited to make a new movie about notorious late SEX PISTOLS star SID VICIOUS. The 42-year-old has written three books on the life of the punk legend - real name John Simon Ritchie - and has now been approached by Ipso Facto films to direct a docu-drama about the bassist. Vicious died of a drug overdose in February 1979 while he was awaiting trial for the murder of his girlfriend Nancy Spungen. Parker, a friend of Ritchie's mother Anne Beverley, says, "I have strong views on (previous 1986 biopic) Sid And Nancy so I wanted to make the ultimate, last word movie. It will be 100 minutes of facts and at the end we're going to turn round and let the audience be the jury." Who Killed Nancy? is slated to begin filming this month (Dec07).
