Magic Mike and True Blood actor, Joe Manganiello will be taking on a film centered around the Smiths for his next project and he's been given permission from Morrissey to use the band's music in the soundtrack. Morrissey, who's been fairly picky with the films he's approved about the iconic band, is because Shoplifters Of The World won't be considered an actual biopic. Manganiello will star as a radio DJ named Mickey and centers around a 1987 incident where a Smiths fan held a Denver radio station at gun point in response to the band's breakup.

"Morrissey agreed to give us the catalogue for a nice, affordable fee," Manganiello said. "Well, it's not cheap, by any stretch of the imagination, but we have Morrissey's blessing to move forward with the Smiths project."
