Wham!’s former manager Simon Napier-Bell is in talks with movie producers about bringing their story to the big screen but thinks that George Michael will put a stop to it.
“There are several people sniffing round about a Wham! film but I’m not sure any of them will come off because they all require Wham! music in them and George controls that,” said Napier-Bell.
Ok I have to comment. There have been a number of reports on this subject. If it is true that George will NOT give this project his approval, I wholeheartedly agree. While I still enjoy many of the Wham songs, George has spent over 20 years writing and producing music that is unmatched in its variety and quality. I see no reason to focus a movie on the Wham period of his career.
I think a movie about “Wham!” would be awsome, a movie about two young boys making it big in UK and the world.
I would certainly enjoy such a movie.
I envy the actor who will play George, great roll to play with a good challenge and large shoes to fill.
But I don’t understand, did George actually veto the idea, or is it all speculations?
I suggest they ask George before turning him into such a tyrant 😛
If I were George I would cooperate with such an idea 😀
