LOCAL rock star Rick Parfitt is to star in a film based on the adventures of his group Status Quo.

The legend, who lives in Alhaurin el Grande, is joining bandmate Francis Rossi to shoot the film Bula Quo! in Fiji.

The action caper will feature 12 of the band’s songs and also stars former Eastenders actor Craig Fairbrass.

Parfitt, 63, said: “Once I found out that we weren’t going to be shooting anywhere cold, I was all for it.”
