Hollywood superstar Leonardo DiCaprio and rock royalty Mick Jagger, have both signed on to work on the upcoming biopic about Sam Phillips, the master producer who helped launch the careers of rock 'n' roll legends including Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash.

While Jagger will take the producer's seat, DiCaprio will assume the dual role of producer and actor (yes, he's playing the protagonist) on the film based on the book Sam Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock 'N' Roll by Peter Guralnick.
