Considering Hollywood’s near-total reliance on familiar properties (comic books, TV shows, movies that have already been made twice before coughhulkcough, etc.), it’s kind of shocking that a Keith Moon biopic has yet to be made.
Consider that problem solved. Hollywood Reporter, uh, reports that the film, long in the works, has received funding and is now in development. Not only that, but Moon’s The Who bandmate Roger Daltrey has been collaborating with producers on the project. He says, “The Keith Moon project is one close to my heart so I am excited to reinvigorate it…
So get pumped up on amphetamines and brandy for this one, although it might still never see the light of day and if it does it will likely be pretty bad, but…still?

Yesterday, the surviving members of TLC held a press conference in New York City to announce plans to release new material in conjunction with a new biopic later this year. Music was previewed for the press, but nothing was released to the public (yet). The movie, however, is another story.
Shortly after the morning press conference let out, VH1 released the first trailer for CrazySexyCool, which tells the story of TLC’s meteoric rise to fame and the tragedy that would eventually follow. You can view the preview below.
The actors cast for CrazySexyCool, including rapper Lil Mama as the fallen Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez, look like the spitting image of the popular trio. Do you agree? Comment below and let us know your thoughts on the new trailer. (more…)
We have been talking about the reign of One Direction a lot in recent weeks, and to be honest it seems there may be no end in sight. Not only are the boys currently working on their third album in two years, but they also have a new 3D film heading to theater that is sure to take fandom to an all new level.
This morning, the gents from One Direction played a Twitter reveal game with fans to have them unlock the title to the group’s upcoming film. After a few quick hours (and a handful of trending topics), it was revealed that the flick we know as 1D3D will now be called This Is Us. It’s a fitting title, I suppose, but definitely not one that pops. You can view the trailer for This Is Us below. (more…)
This Year’s South By Southwest Festival will see the premiere of several notable music documentaries, with themes ranging from the digital download revolution to a little-known secretary for The Beatles. The new documentary Downloaded tracks the precipitous rise and fall of Napster and the whiz kids behind it: Shawn Fanning and Sean Parker. Fun fact: it’s directed by Alex Winter. Don’t know the name? Well, surely you know Bill S. Preston, esquire. Yep, that’s right. The new documentary film is directed by Keanu Reeves’ co-star in the famous Bill and Ted movies. Though it might come as a surprise, Winter made the jump to directing in 1993 with the comedy sci-fi flick Freaked. Excellent.
Another SXSW premiere this year is Good ‘Ol Freda, which tells the almost entirely unacknowledged life story of Freda Kelly, the president of the Beatles Fan Club, and the band’s “secretary” for 11 years. Kelly became close to the band during their early days as an up-and-coming Liverpool act and stayed loyal to the band during their rise to fame and subsequent breakup. The film depicts how, “as the Beatles’ devoted secretary and friend, Freda was there as history unfolded; she was witness to the evolution “ advances and setbacks, breakthroughs and challenges “ of the greatest band in history.” Even more reason to get excited for SXSW 2013.
