LOS ANGELES, CA Thursday Jun.7.2007 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- The Strokes' guitarist Albert Hammond Jr is using his time away from the band to write a screenplay.

According to NME.com, Hammond Jr. is adapting the Charles Bukowski novel "Pulp," which revolves around the bizarre life of a private investigator.

The star says he does not wish to direct the picture, but he did have this to say to New York Magazine: "I wouldn't want someone to ruin my script. I don't think they'd let me direct but I'd want to be somewhere in the picture like that."
