    According to The Hollywood Reporter, writer-director Robert Saitzyk wrote and will direct The Last Beat, a drama inspired by the last days of Jim Morrison of The Doors. The film will begin shooting in Paris this October and Shawn Andrews is expected to star in the film.

    The film will not be a traditional biopic; rather, it will be a bit of a fictionalized account that will follow Jay Douglas, an American rock star in the early '70s, as he drudges through what will be his final days on earth. The film will focus on how he navigates two relationships with women in Paris: a countess named Clemence and his soulmate from California, named Valerie Eason. Wow, sounds like a real predicament for Jay.

    Who is your favorite late singer from this era? Did you dig Val Kilmer's performance as Jim Morrison in The Doors?
