RayDavies 102814

The new director and stars to feature in the new Kinks biopic, You Really Got Me, have finally been announced.

Julien Temple, most well known for directing the Sex Pistols mockumentary The Great Rock 'n' Roll Swindle, will helm the upcoming film.

Johnny Flynn has been chosen to play Ray Davies, while George Mackey will take on the role of Dave Davies.

"This is an exciting chance to tell the Kinks story in a visceral and real way," Temple told Screen Daily. "It's not easy to find British leading men who can deliver the kind of musically compelling performances we need, and we have those in Johnny and George."

Shooting for the film is scheduled to take place in the U.K. later this year.
