Good Vibrations About Brian Wilson Film
River Road Entertainment has secured Brian Wilson’s life rights for a film about the Beach Boy.
Although a title or release date hasn’t been announced, we can tell you the project features producer Bill Pohlad and television writer and producer John Wells. Oren Moverman, who co-wrote the Bob Dylan biopic “I’m Not There,” is writing the script.
The Los Angeles Times notes that the film will focus on specific eras of the musician/composer/arranger’s life.
“I have no interest in making a biopic,” Pohlad told Los Angeles Times blog 24 Frames. “What’s fascinating to me is to look at the different elements in his life, like that super-creative period when he was doing Pet Sounds and the later part when he was redeemed.”
Pohlad is open to the possibility of several actors portraying Wilson at different stages of his life. The producer, who compared the project to “A Beautiful Mind,” explained that while rights to many of Wilson’s songs have been secured, the film will be more about the musician’s life rather than an excuse to show off his tunes.
According to the New York Times, River Road Entertainment released a statement saying the film would “take an unconventional look at Wilson’s unique musical process as well as his struggles with mental illness, and how he managed to persevere as an artist with the love and support of his wife Melinda.”
