First Look At Ewen Bremner As Alan McGee In ‘Creation Stories’

by Paul Heath

Here’s your very first look at actor Ewen Bremner as Alan McGee in the upcoming biopic Creation Stories. The film is written by Irvine Welsh, exec produced by Danny Boyle, and directed by Nick Moran. In addition to the new images, we can also reveal that Jason Isaacs, Ed Byrne, Paul Kaye, Thomas Turgoose, Steven Berkoff, Rufus Jones, Perry Benson and Mel Raido have also joined the cast.

Creation Stories is the feature film of the life of Alan McGee – the adaptation of his highly acclaimed autobiography ‘Creation Stories – Riots, Raves and Running a Record Label‘.

The beginning, near bankruptcy, pills, thrills, spats, prats, success, excess and breakdowns. From leaving school at sixteen to setting up the Living Room club in London, showcasing emerging indie bands, from managing The Jesus and Mary Chain to co-founding Creation at 23. He brought us My Bloody Valentine, House of Love, Ride and, of course, Primal Scream. Embracing acid house, Alan decamped to Manchester, and hung out at the Hacienda, taking Creation into the big time with Primal Scream’s Screamadelica. His drug-induced breakdown, when it came, was dramatic, but climbing back to sobriety, he oversaw Oasis’ rise to become one of the biggest bands in the world.
