[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Beach Boys[/lastfm] fans have a lot to be excited about. There are strong rumors of a 50th anniversary tour and now news of a Brian Wilson movie!
The Los Angeles Times reports that The Tree of Life/Into the Wild producer Bill Pohlad and ER/The West Wing producer John Wells are developing a film that takes a closer look at the highs and lows of Wilson’s life. Oren Moverman, co-writer of I’m Not There is writing the script.
Bill Pohlad told the Los Angeles Times “I have no interest in making a biopic… What’s fascinating to me is to look at the different elements in his life, like that super-creative period when he was doing Pet Sounds and the later part when he was redeemed.”
The LA Times blog also reports that the rights to many of Wilson’s songs have been secured and producers are working closely with Wilson and his wife.
