Gorillaz Movie?

that's the greatest idea I've ever heard.

but directed by Steven Spielberg?

that's the greatest messup the idea could get.

And I believe it won't happen - or I feel it in my old very large bones. Those bones might be wrong, also, so I won't say anything for certain.

Man that would suck. I know the videos are good, but the characters and music suck and what kind of plot will it be?:

"In the greatest Action adventure of the year, on a planet, torn by war, and band must emerge in a fight, to make songs with lyrics that have no meaning, don't make sense and were written on the back of a piece of bog roll"

(Sorry if this ****es you off NiKo)

The music-videos are great, the characters are funny, the music is mainly good - but Gorillaz da movie?

Steven Spielberg and Gorillaz shouldn't be even mentioned in the same sentence.

And like I said before, it'll prolly be a mess-up.

I heard that the filming of the Matrix sequals was delayed after Keanu Reeve's girlfriend was killed in a car accident earlier in the year. Unless something else has happened which has delayed it even further

i guess you guys dont know much about gorillaz, and that you can make a movie of the how the band formed...let me give you a little brief history:

The story of Gorillaz is a characteristally messy one. Saturday Boy Stu-Pot, a keyboard obsessive and nice kid dullard, is the star employee at Uncle Norm's Organ Emporium, on course to make regional manager. But then comes a Saturday to end all weeks (just like a Sunday, but with shopping). Murdoc, with his nasty bad boy crew, ramraids the shop in a tatty Vauxhall Astra. His plan: to seize the synths and form a chart topping band with the booty. He drives... SMASH!... through the shop window and... SMASH!... into Stu-Pot's head, fracturing his eyeball. Result: 30,000 hours of community service for Murdoc, plus 10 hours every week of caring for the vegetabilised Stu-Pot.

Soon, Murdoc's rotten driving skills again force life to take a different turn. While attempting a 360 doughnut spin in Nottingham's Tesco carpark, he catapults Stu-Pot through the windscreen and into a kerb. Stu-Pot's other eye is fractured, his mind is revived and he stands a young, black eyed god, with hedgehog hair and a vacant stare. Not only that, but his synth playing takes a serious turn for the weird.

Perfect pop material. Stu-Pot is renamed 2D (because he's got two dents in his head). Now Murdoc needs a drummer.

Rewind a few years. In New York State, Russel, a middle-class kid, is forced out of his posh private school due to his being possessed by a demon. He lies in a coma for four years, until an elaborate exorcism sets him free. Russel joins Brooklyn High, where he falls in with a group of talented street musicians, rappers and DJs. Hip-Hop saves his soul. For a time. A random drive-by shooting kills all of his friends and as Russel, the lone survivor, lies in a state of shock, the spirits of his chums invade his body, turning Russel's eyes a spooky white and giving him amazing drumming, rapping and general hip-hop skills.

His parents move him to England, where they hope he'll have the chance of a quieter life. They hadn't reckoned on Murdoc, who tracks Russel down in a Soho Rap Record Store. Now, all the fledgling group need is a guitarist. They place an ad in the NME. The day the ad is published, a Fed-Ex'd freight container is delivered to their door. Out jumps a small Japanese person carrying a Les Paul. She jabbers at them incomprehensibly, before launching into a riff to end all riffs, rounding it off with a hi-karate jump. The boys are speechless. Noodle has one word for them. It is Noodle.

Gorillaz are born, and signed amidst the mayhem of their very first gig. Such is the way legends are created.

Well, now I realize the meaning of some of their music-videos http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif

That background story would truly be funny to see on-screen - as a movie http://www.escapemi.com/forums/wink.gif

well, the actually story is, some guys made them in a bedroom somewhere and put some samples together on a program and then got that Damon guy from Blur to do the vocals

Can you guess how much I like the Gorillaz?

Suppose that's wise 'cos most of the career was launched off the fact that they were animated
