Brian Wilson Is Getting A Biopic

    Brian Wilson has one of the most movie-able lives in pop music history; it’s got abuse, success, insanity, drug addiction, and (more or less) a happy ending – so it’s about time he gets his own movie. According to The New York Times, a biopic is being written by Oren Moverman, who wrote 2009’s well-regarded The Messenger, and will be distributed by River Road Entertainment. A statement from the company explained that the movie will “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.” So I’m thinking maybe James Franco? It’s hard to tell given how much ground the movie will ostensibly cover – and it has to be called Smile, right? [P4k]
