David Garrett is set to make his movie debut as Paganini in a new biopic of the great violinist and composer, reports Variety. The Devil's Violinist has a budget of between $15m and $20m, and is due to begin filming in Europe this August. The film's writer and director is English-born Bernard Rose, who made the Beethoven biopic Immortal Beloved in 1994. Garrett calls Paganini 'the first rock star' and told Variety: 'It has been a lifelong ambition to be involved in a film about my hero.'
