One way or another, it seems a Blondie movie could be in the works. 

According to reports, the band's co-founder Chris Stein says Blondie, fronted by the iconic Debbie Harry, is ready for a close up.

At an exhibition dedicated to the 70s new wave icons which ran in New York's Chelsea hotel over the weekend, Stein said “We’re always talking about stuff like that. It’s all behind the scenes at the moment, so whatever happens...”

Directors being linked to the project are Oscar-winning Crash director Paul Haggis, Jane Eyre director Cary Fukunaga, and Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky, all of whom paid a visit to the exhibition over the weekend. Martin Scorsese's name has also been thrown into the mix.  

While nothing is set in stone yet, people are already speculating as to who will take on the lead roles of Harry and Stein, with Stien responding when asked about who he would like to have play him, he said, "I think Shia LaBeouf is great, but he’s nuts”.
