According to reports, Steven will chart Morrissey's life just before The Smiths formed.

A Morrissey biopic called Steven is on its way, and it looks like its lead actor has already been confirmed.

According to Deadline, the Mark Gill-written and directed film about The Smith's singer will star War And Peace actor Jack Lowden.

Steven - taken from the singer's first name - will also chart the years immediately before the Manchester band formed, showing how Morrissey first formed a bond with Johnny Marr.

Jack Lowden - who won an Olivier award for 2014 drama Ghosts - has most recently graced our screens as Nikolai Rostov in the TV adaptation of Leo Tolstoy's famous novel.

While there's no release date currently confirmed for the biopic, we're sure plenty of fans will be thinking: How Soon Is Now?
