Behold, the great Jim Morrison comeback of 2010.

On the heels of the recently released Morrison documentary 'When You're Strange,' the Hollywood Reporter broke the news that Robert Saitzyk ('Godspeed') will write and direct 'The Last Beat,' a feature film about the final days of the Doors' frontman.

Well, sort of.

Described as a "non-traditional biopic," 'The Last Beat' will follow 70's-era rock singer Jay Douglas -- a thinly veiled Morrison composite -- as he juggles relationships with two different women against the backdrop of Paris. Behold, the great Jim Morrison comeback of 2010.

If the approach sounds familiar, director Gus Van Sant did something similar in 2005's 'Last Days,' which chronicled the fictional end times for Kurt Cobain-like grunge band singer "Blake" (Michael Pitt).

Shawn Andrews (who played Pickford in 'Dazed & Confused') is attached to star as Jay Douglas. Andrews also starred in Saitzyk's 2001 film 'After the Flood.'
