We’ve got some good news and bad news, readers.
Here’s the good news: former Wham! manager Simon Napier-Bell has his heart set on making a big screen flick about the British duo’s success.
And now the bad news: super star and stink bug George Michael may put a dagger through Napier-Bell’s dream:
“There are several people sniffing around my Wham! film,” [Napier-Bell] said, “but I’m not sure any of them will come off because they all require Wham! music in them and George controls that. He will have the yes or no on each script presented. George would want control.”
The film, which would concentrate on the band’s heyday from 1983-1985, is said to be budgeted at Â£50m, though it’s unclear whether this would include a fee for music copyright. Michael has yet to comment.
Excuse us while we mourn the potential loss of what could be the greatest, most unnecessary musically-inclined film ever.
