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.
Sounds cool. Hopefully, George won’t eff it up.
It could be great. I like the fact musicals are ever so slightly in again. But I am a gay man.
George is a bitter irritating self centered bore. I was at the concert for MAtthew Sheppard, and George comes out and just rants about getting busted in the toilette for hitting on a cop…um, George, this is the MATTHEW SHEPPARD concert…you know, the boy who was brutally murdered and left tied to a fence in winter in Wyoming? Yeah, I think this is a bit more important that you being upset that some cop didn’t want a B.J. from you in a public bathroom. As for the movie, Hopefully they are true to life, which means making the actor who plays Andrew Ridgely much hotter than the George Michael Character.
