Los Angeles, Sep 23 (IANS) Filmmaker Quentin Tarantino will reportedly star as filmmaker Roger Corman in a new biopic.

Corman is known for making mostly B-grade movies and the

film, which is titled "The Man with the Kaleidoscope Eyes", will be on his controversial drug drama "The Trip", reports femalefirst.co.uk.

"It's the story of how I made 'The Trip' in the 1960s about LSD. It starred Jack Nicholson in one of his first roles and I took LSD, so I knew what it was all about," said Corman.

"It was very controversial but it was the only American picture invited to the Cannes Film Festival that year. I have a cameo role in the movie about it, playing the executive, who didn't want me to make the film," he added.
