    Actor Cary Elwes is going behind the camera to direct a biopic about Kit Lambert, the man who discovered The Who.

    The Saw and The Princess Bride star will make his directorial debut with the film about Lambert, the manager credited with launching The Who alongside producer/manager Chris Stamp.

    Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey of The Who support the film, and will contribute biographical details.

    Producer Orian Williams, said "It's a riches to rags story. Kit Lambert was one of the great engines of creativity and change in the 1960s. He used his wild behavior intelligently, to inspire a fearlessness that pushed The Who and others to break down musical and cultural walls."

    Lambert died in 1981 at the age of 45 after falling down a flight of stairs at his mother's house.

    Will you see this film?
