The Streets star MIKE SKINNER is taking his time over his upcoming debut as a movie director - because he finds the idea of a speedy turnaround "terrifying".
The Dry Your Eyes hitmaker is set to release The Streets' last album, Computers and Blues, this month (Feb11).
The Brit started penning a screenplay for his first foray into film in 2009 and is planning to start shooting after wrapping up The Streets' farewell tour later this year (11).
But Skinner insists he won't rush to release his debut movie, because he's determined to tackle filmmaking with the same diligence he applied to his music.
He tells the BBC, "The idea that you have this six weeks in order to make a film I find really terrifying.
"So we'd rather take two years and almost write it while we shoot it and have the freedom to re-do stuff and come back to it and completely re-write things.
"And that's the way I've always made music. If I'd have done that album in a professional studio it would have cost millions because I was in the studio every day for years. And it's £1,000 a day in any decent studio.
"We probably won't get many screens because it's not like I'm Martin Scorsese or anything, so whatever really."
