Arctic Monkeys' Alex Turner Writing Superhero Movie

Listen to Arctic Monkeys Radio on iHeartRadio

Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner and fellow musician Miles Kane are getting into the movie business. 

Kane - who performs with Turner as the Last Shadow Puppets - tells Digital Spy the rockers are writing a superhero film together.  Kane says he can't share too many details at this point, but explains that the movie will be set in the '60s and has an "X-Men kind of vibe."  He adds that he and Turner won't have any major acting roles in the future film, although he isn't ruling out a "little cameo." 

Turner and Kane released the Last Shadow Puppets' debut album The Age of the Understatement in 2008.  Kane says they always talk about recording a follow-up, but for now they're focusing on the movie. 

Turner is also keeping busy with the Arctic Monkeys summer tour schedule.  They played Milwaukee's Summerfest last week, and will be back in the U.S. in August for Lollapalooza.
