The film was tentatively titled 'Steven' - referring to his first name - and is set to star actor Jack Lowden in the title role, as the film explores Morrissey's early upbringing and life before he joined The Smiths.
Downton Abbey's Jessica Findlay Brown has also been cast as his friend, artist Linder Sterlin.
However, it's now been revealed that the film's new title is 'England is Mine', in reference to a lyric from the Smiths song 'Still Ill'.
Producer Orian Williams (who also produced 'Control', the biopic of Joy Division's Ian Curtis) revealed the news in a new interview, during which he also confirmed that the film will end with Morrissey's meeting of Johnny Marr, his songwriting partner in The Smiths.
The film doesn't have a release date as yet, but according to sources it's currently in post-production.
