A. Idol: The Movie

08.02.2007

American Idol Simon Cowell is taking his "American Idol" concept to the next logical level - a feature film. While not an actual transposition of AI to the big screen, the film, titled STAR STRUCK, will follow the basic framework of the show, even to the point of adding a meta angle by featuring actual actors auditioning for roles in the film and Cowell mercilessly lambasting them at the film's onset. The actual plot follows ten contestants as they try to make it to the final round of an American Idol type competitive singing show. The ten leads will be cast through open casting calls and said calls will be featured in the aforementioned onset. British TV writer Jonathan Harvey will be scripting this meta journey down the AI rabbit hole with a director soon to be announced. Cowell hopes to get this bad boy into theaters by next summer so that after everyone's done watching another actual AI cycle, they can enjoy a fictionalized version. How fun!

Deja Vu

Wasn't this movie released last year under the title "American Dreamz"?
Plus, wasn't "From Justin to Kelly" the fastest film released on DVD, cause they were worried that the large thump it made when crashing in theatres would scare any chance of profits away?

further proof indeed daforce

I am currently of the opinion that Rupert Murdoch has a birthmark of three sixes on his head somewhere. What could be a better idea of bringing forth armageddon than through the entertainment industry? It's more influential than politics and more accessible than religion.

I dunno... this sounds like something that has the potential to be good, but not the likelihood. Hopefully Cowell has the relative good sense to not do another From Justin to Kelly.
