Animated Tommy Movie!
« on: February 03, 2005, 12:57:50 AM »

The Who's 'Tommy' to Become Most Expensive Animated Film

The Who's celebrated rock-opera Tommy is to become the most expensive animated movie of all time.

'Grease' producer Robert Stigwood plans to turn the 1975 Pete Townshend movie into a $400 million cartoon, which will feature the voices of singers Robbie Williams and Bono.

Stigwood, 70, says, "Pete Townshend is right behind this."

"It will feature the biggest names in the music industry. The original movie costs $3-4 million but this will cost $300-400 million."

"If you are going to do it, you've got to do it right."

Yeah its content isnt exactly family friendly.  I would hate to see this flop, stain the Who name further.  Isnt it going to be a Broadway thing too?

Yeah they did the Tommy on Broadway things years ago. I don't know if it's still running though. I wonder if it's gonna be a cartoon or computer animated. Weird either way. And the performers??? Bono? I don't know about that. What's he gonna be Tommy? Why can't they just use the Who!! That was the major problem in the movie version. The Wall is more watchable because they're doing their own songs.

Arhhgg i know, that woman (i ferget her name, anne or something) i couldnt take.  I didnt like the movie very much, whereas I really liked the Wall film.  Less flashy guest stars and more of the music that tells the story.

Ann-Margret. Horrible!! So was the guy who played her husband. The only good parts were Clapton and the Who doing they're own stuff. I can't remember any other good performers.

Tina Turner as the acid queen was good, and elton john was good, but no matter how good he was how could he try and match Rogers performance of Pinball Wizard.  Good effort though.

Jeez, I can't believe I forgot about Elton!! Yeah, he was good. I remember Tina Turner, but she annoys me. How on earth did I not remember ELTON though!! Who was the guy who played Cousin Kevin? (is it Kevin?) He was pretty good actually.

I never could stand her acting. She always seemed a bit hammy to me. But she was very beautiful. I liked her in Viva Las Vegas. Elvis made her seem normal.

Yeah Moonie was good.

Ann-Margret is/was a goddess. I loved her in 'Tommy'.


I thought the beans brought out the best in her
