You're very welcome! ♥
But it would even make much more sense than Hollywood because the Manics are Big in Japan, not USA.

ComixWave Films studios would do a good job too, I believe.
While watching Your Name, I thought the way they so gorgeously depicted a tragedy was so Manicsy.

This will be cobblers. A music biopic without the actual music is DOA.

Its the equivalent of those bargain bin music docs that float unflattering dodgy photos of the artist whilst the directors brothers nephews garage band play music vaguely in the style of said artist but not close enough to get sued. Basically the sort of car crash tragi-comic guff thats on Channel 5 at 11.05pm on a Tuesday night where a 60 year old four feet overweight midget in a massive wig is trying to portray Freddie Mercury or someone.

So let's see if we can make this thread about the progress of the film!
So far the Manics have disowned and not having anything to do with it, and going from consensus on here everyone thinks it will be shit.
So plenty of time for the lady director to razzle dazzle!
Unless it's a Supervillain getting skin problems in a Lindy Heymann mask trying to get the access code to the hidden Richey era material needed to power a brainwashing machine, obviously.

I remember that, he said something like ‘Richey would be sat in the corner cutting himself, and I’d be like ‘chill out, have a pint!’’ He seemed kind of resigned and mildly amused by the idea, in a kind of ‘it’ll be shit, but what can you do?’ way.

Hopefully the film will at least be respectful of all concerned.

It'll be a terrible movie and probably way off the mark. If it happens, the only thing we can hope for is it's made well, received well and does the Manics and Richey justice, maybe even gaining them a few more fans. We'll see. Of course, unless they can persuade the band to give their blessing, use the music and whatnot, then it'll be pretty lame I imagine and air on TV in the early hours of the morning to be seen by about three people, never to known about by anyone else.

Who would you vote for each role though?

Robert Sheehan for Richey?

Maxim Baldry has a very similar look to Richey and is young enough (23) to play him from late teens til the age he disappeared. Brilliant actor too.

Good call

Hilary Swank bears more than a passing resemblance...

But let's call Winona

I think Harry Visinoni (Seb off Coronation Street) would be a great young JDB. For mannerisms as much as appearance.
