Film based on the Pink Floyd track 'Another Brick In the Wall' is in the works

11.29.2010

Andy Harries, the producer behind THE DAMNED UNITED and THE QUEEN, is reportedly planning to put together a film based on the Pink Floyd music track 'Another Brick In the Wall' from the prog rock band's 1979 album The Wall.

The new project would not be a remake of the Alan Parker-directed 1982 Pink Floyd film THE WALL, but rather, a telling of the true story of the school children who sang on the track 'Another Brick In the Wall' and their music teacher Alan Renshaw. Producer Harries describes the film as "Dead Poets Society meets School of Rock."

Deadline adds that the film would follow Renshaw "who arrived at a struggling north London comprehensive (public) school in the late 70s, determined to shake things up. His class eventually ends up singing the chorus on the Pink Floyd track whose controversial lyrics, flicking a V-sign at authority, end up getting Renshaw sacked."

First-time screenwriter Steve Thompson is on scripting duties. Harries admits, however, that he has not yet secured the rights to the Pink Floyd song.

You can listen to the three parts of 'Another Brick In the Wall' below:

They should really make a Pink Floyd biopic, every band member who has been in that band is interesting enough for an individual biopic. It would be the greates rock movie of all time.

As long as they aren't remaking the Wall, I really can't complain.

They really are basing movies on just about anything these days, aren't they? What's next, basing a movie on a well-known guitar riff or a catchy chorus? An advertising jingle?

Don't give them ideas don't give them ideas don't give them ideas d-

This is beyond fucking stupid! And here's why "Another Brick in the Wall" is just a small part of a large epic album! That's like basing an entire movie on "The Great Gig in the Sky" when in reality it's only one portion of a larger story! Fuck this shit.

The Wall hasn't aged that well for me. I don't HATE it, there're just a LOT of songs I end up skipping. And I've heard 'Another Brick in the Wall' so many damn times. I'd like to see a film based on the songs 'Echoes' or 'Set the Controls for the Heart of the Sun.'
