Wouldn't it be nice if we got a Beach Boys musical?

10.01.2010

Twentieth Century Fox has some mellow musical times in store for you.

It seems that the studio beat out many others in a bidding war for the rights to some of the Beach Boys most legendary songs to be used in a musical. The pitch for the film came from Susannah Grant who has written screenplays for ERIN BROCKOVICH, EVER AFTER, and THE SOLOIST.

The plot of the musical is being kept a secret, but apparently it will have a fictional storyline in the fashion of MAMMA MIA or ACROSS THE UNIVERSE.

The musical will be produced by Craig Zadan, Neil Meron and John Stamos. "Alright. If you were a chick, whose the one guy you would sleep with?" "John Stamos!" Yes, it's that John Stamos. As if there could ever be another as brilliant as he. Meron and Zadan have both worked on musicals for theater and film. They produced on HAIRSPRAY and executive produced on CHICAGO. Zadan, Meron, and Stamos have worked together before on the television movie, THE BEACH BOYS: AN AMERICAN FAMILY. The film will be a FOX 2000 property.

Does this have potential? Do we have an massive fans of The Beach Boys out there? Too bad it isn't a biopic. I'd really like to see Brian Wilson in his crazy bearded days, and throw in a dash of Charlie Manson.

Extra Tidbit: I'm sorry, but "Pet Sounds" is a great album.

I know the song certainly did! Never saw the film...Bowie in 1975 did a cover of this track-still horrible.

Across the Universe (the movie) was beyond horrible. Horrible story and horrible Beatles covers. Its sad that I hate Bono with a passion but he was actually my favorite part about that movie. I never and will never understand everyones undying love for that movie.

Every time I hear about The Beach Boys I always think of "Skeet Surfin'" song from the movie Top Secret.

heck yah, i'm game for this. I remember watching across the universe wishing it was the beach boys. Hopefully it includes a lot of pet sounds/smile era stuff. pet sounds is my favorite album ever.

and i too have been hoping for a brian wilson biopic. Or one that followed both dennis and brian. both were musically amazing, brian the genius. but showing how depression and mental illness ruined most of their lives. showing dennis die. but then somehow brian getting it back together

but i think the people who did "bottle shock" are doing a dennis pic.
