YOU wait all year for a biopic of Dylan Thomas, then three come along all at once.....

Rhys Ifans is set to star as Dylan Thomas in a biopic about the writer's short but colourful life, with John Malkovich also in the cast.

The Notting Hill actor, who is perhaps as well known for his partying as Dylan was, has history with the Swansea poet, having team up with Twin Town director Kevin Allen for a Dylan Thomas tribute at this year’s Festival No 6 in Portmeirion.

Dominion will be directed and written by Decoding Annie Parker's Steven Bernstein and it will be set in 1953 in New York, where Thomas died at the age of 39.
