Crowe and Pearl Jam

04.16.2009

Pearl Jam guitarist Mike McCready told Billboard the other day that the band are working with writer/director Cameron Crowe (ALMOST FAMOUS) on a kind of behind-the-scenes film. I can't tell from what he said if he means it will be about their new shows that they are doing, or their show in South America next year. Here is what he said:

"We're building up to our big 20th anniversary... We're trying to have a little campaign of building rereleases with new mixes and new outtakes up until that time. We're trying to do a movie with Cameron Crowe with all of our existing footage."

If there is anything Cameron Crowe knows, it is music. So this is a no-brainer. It's like hiring Ray Allen to do a documentary about the jump shot. Or Uwe Boll to do one about being a massive douche.
Extra Tidbit: Eric Stoltz was promised a role in every one of Crowe's films.

Pearl jam...

was my second favourite band from 1992 until something like 2000... Love Ten, Vs. and Vitalogy, but they kinda "lost it" IMHO until their great "Pearl jam" album. I hope their next album will rock as hard as this one!

Sweet

Pearl Jam is my favorite band in the world, and I love Cameron Crowe- he's covered them from the beginning, so a documentary by Crowe would be awesome!

HELL YES!!!!!

GREATEST BAND EVER!!! At first I thought it was Russell Crowe starring in a flick about the band - in the "State of Play" poster he resembles a certain lead singer, plus he can sing too.
However, this news is just as great!!! I wish they would come back to Rapid City, SD. They had to of liked this place, we are in the artwork for 'Yield.'

sigh

Me too filmaddict. Me too. But there will most likely be a Nirvana movie before a Pearl Jam one. And since that's never going to happen in quality and wide release...

I want another Cameron Crow movie instead, like not a [link] kind of thing. All of his movies are at least very good.

Aw, shucks.

I thought this article was going to be about Russell Crowe playing Eddie Vedder in a movie biopic.
