The Lizard King (Jim Morrison) Returns?

Tim Sullivan (Driftwood, Detroit Rock City) has optioned the rights to The Doors co-founder Ray Manzarek’s bestselling novel The Poet in ExileManzarek’s novel explores the notion “what if” his former band mate, the iconic rock and roll poet and legend Jim Morrison, did indeed stage his death in 1971 (as widely speculated), and now, 40 years later, contacts Manzarek from his hiding place in the Seychelles Islands to embark on one final journey of rock and roll rebellion.  Scheduled to shoot 2012, The Poet in Exile will be produced through ClubHouse Entertainment.

I've seen a few documentaries about the Doors and also the Oliver Stone film.  Until now I never knew that people had speculated that Jim Morrison is alive.  I was also unaware of the source material here.  I have to do some reading up on this one.


More than anything I am excited for the casting on this one.  Who would you pick to play Jim Morrison?
