Mick Jagger is set for a return to acting after signing on to play a media mogul in a new film inspired by one of his own ideas.
The Rolling Stones star will appear in Tabloid, a new project he is developing through his Jagged Films production company.

Screenwriter Josh Olson is developing the script, based on a concept from the rocker.

RollingStone.com reports Jagger’s character will be a Rupert Murdoch-like figure, who mentors a young journalist.

Jagger last appeared on the big screen in 2001’s The Man from Elysian Fields.
