Will Barry White be the subject of Joel Schumacher's next film?

09.15.2010
If you're a fan of velvety voiced mood setter Barry White... then I'm sorry to be reporting this news.

According to Pajiba's "Hollywood Cog" insider, much derided filmmaker Joel Schumacher (TWELVE, PHONE BOOTH, THE BATFILMS OF WHICH WE SHALL NOT SPEAK) has apparently signed on for THE BARRY WHITE STORY, a film that's surprisingly not a biopic. It might actually be worse.

Per Pajiba: "The pitch, which comes out of the Hollywood Gangs Production company, is in the vein of SHES OUT OF MY LEAGUE, and its about the ghost of Barry White teaching some loser kid how to channel him to get a girl." The ghost of Barry White? The GHOST? Jesus f*cking Christ, people.

No word on when the film will move forward. Schumacher's current theatrical release, TWELVE, is bombing something fierce at the box office... it's only made $183,920 since August 19th ($110,238 in its opening weekend)!
Extra Tidbit: Man, I love that Whacking Day episode from "The Simpsons".

It seems only a few years ago the man was making guest spots on "Ally McBeal." I'm no die-hard, but the idea of them probably compiling lyrics, maybe interviews, or whatever they have in mind. It sounds beyond idiotic. And I'm a guy who has defended Schumacher on more than one occasion. I'm a little sorry for him. If a trailer came out, honestly, I could be turned. But I still wouldn't shell out change for theater seats, I don't care how good it could look.

This sounds awful, but the man had made some of my favorite movies. The Lost Boys, Tigerland, and A Time To Kill are all gems in my book.

WTF

This sounds like complete B.S. Like an early April Fool's joke. No way this film ever makes it beyond the development stage.

Barry White should have been the voice of Darth Vader.
