Damon: "We're making a Gorillaz film, and Terry Gilliam is involved"

Gorillaz co-creator Damon Albarn has spoken out on the progress of the Gorillaz movie idea. In an interview in the latest issue of UK music magazine uncut, Damon says that acclaimed director (Twelve Monkeys, Brazil) and Monty Python member Terry Gilliam is involved:-

" [Gorillaz] has been a fantastic journey which isn't over, because we're making a film. We've got Terry Gilliam involved. But as far as being in a big band and putting pop music out there, it's finished. We won't be doing that any more."

Finally, a movie!

Many bands/projects have said they're Not Gonna Do It Any More, and Did It Again anyway, so I wouldn't recommend give up hope on seeing a "Gorillaz reunion" completely. I mean, aren't the Eagles on their "I Swear To God, And On Our Mothers' Graves, This Is Our Last Tour, Really Mean It This Time, No Foolies, For Sure" tour?
So... Gorillaz is over... but we get a film! Oh well, Gorillaz was good while it lasted! Can't wait for the movie. :D

I sincerely hope to god that Mr. Gilliam doesn't screw this one up, like he did with the Brothers Grimm. I mean, good movie, but God, could it have gotten ANY weirder?
But him w/ a Gorillaz project... this is gonna be good. FIngers crossed and long live Murdoc.

I really hope they are not over. They are what I am. I cherich them more than life itself. Damon Albarn is like the center of all which is music. He can't just quit making music like THAT. The gorillaz must live forever and I don't care if they are a ARE a cartoon band for all you gorillaz haters out there. THEY ARE NOT OVER. QUIT TRICKING US DAMON AND JAMIE. VIVA LA GORILLAZ.
VIVA LA DAMON.

I am however glad that they are still working on a gorillaz movie. I really hope it will turn out great.

But I have a few questions:
1. Didn't someone say that this is only phase 2.5? and I think I heard someone say, that the gorillaz were also working on a phase 3.

2. Would the movie either be in theaters? or just go directally to DVD or something? I'm mostly thinking DVD.

Can anyone answer these?

Thank you all....

1. Nobody knows what's going on in the heads of those two. If they are ending the band then the release of the DVD and the book is probably the end of phase two.
2. Not sure. I guess depending on the budget, hype, and promoting of the film will we see if it goes in theaters or on DVD.

Frankly, i'm not getting worried about this whole thing at all. They stated in the Essentials showing that they "are tired of it FOR THE MOMENT."

Well i dont care how crappy people think it is, i myself am very excited for this movie. and no matter if the band is over, Gorillaz will still live on forever and always. HAIL GORILLAZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!-zurdoc fade niccals
pff.. i'll believe it when i see it... its either real, or another fluke...
and even if it is real.. it'll probably be 4 years or some crap before it is released.

and what!? Damon is killing the Gorillaz? well, if no more music they better produce other shit. i don't know why Jamie lets Damon wear the pants in their Gorillaz relationship. or has Jamie let Damon take all control and Jamie just draws the art..? bullshit i say! i'd slap Damon if i could. >:E
PSSSH LIKE IF DAMON IS GONNA DO A GORILLAZ MOVIE . HE"S SAYING BULLSHIT !!!!!!!!! I"LL BELIEVE IT WHEN A MOVIE POSTER IS POSTED ON GORILLAZ UNOFFICIAL .

melinda
AMEN!
Blargh, why is it every time someone official says that the 'Rillaz are over....it's almost always Damon?
if this movie project gets cancelled again Gorillaz will do a third album like they did for demon days .Damon Albarn can be such a bullshitter . I bet this topic is a fraud ...............


melinda
What the hell is it with people like you!? Just because some news isn't to your liking, you call it bullshit. Get over yourself and deal with it.

Tchh...! Load of shit. It's cool a movie is coming out, but i hate getting pissed about this whole split up thing again. If he really is going to stop the band I'd really like to know what BS reason he has for doing it. Hypothetically speaking, if they do break up and he doesn't give out a reason, then he's giving up too easily and not thinking of the fans. I still don't like how Jamie and Damon simply called Gorillaz "just an idea" in the "Essential: Gorillaz" documentary, since there are a lot fans who see Gorillaz as a real band. Still though, i'm not going to get too worried about this because in the Essentials interview Damon said "We are tired of it FOR THE MOMENT."

OMG THAT IS MEAN. THE BAND CAN'T PULL THAT STUFF OFF! I MEAN, IS NOODLE GONNA GO BACK TO JAPAN AND BE A HOBO ON THE STREETS? WILL 2D LIVE WILL HIS FATHER? WILL MURDOC err...STILL BEAT UP 2D? WILL RUSSEL LOSE WEIGHT? I have lots of questions. DAMON AND HEWLETT DO NOT DO THIS TO US!!! And for the paula joke is there anything that is true?

Let's hope for an original soundtrack then, huh?


I can't say I'm as pleased as I thought i'd be. It's like giving someone a puppy and then shooting their old dog in front of them.

Honestly I'd rather new albums.. A movie is just an animated version of what their autobiography will be, right? It was different before there was a book, because the movie idea seemed cool. Now we've got the full story in book form, and don't NEED to see it. It's just capitolizing off their fame at this point. What sucks, too, is that NOW fans will be angry about it and say they'll never see the movie. But when the trailers come out, we'll all be drooling over it and waiting in long lines to be the first to see it.


But I give this three weeks before we hear Jamie or Damon say "what Movie? I never said anything about a movie.. We aren't working on one right now, but maybe in the future."
It's possible they may do something new. Dicuss the disapperance of Noodle and end the band with a good band. That is if they are ending the band.
hmmmmmm.
good.
big concerts.
new movie.
a DVD.
autobiography.
so obvious it was over.
i'm deff not sad.
some just don't relize how hard it is for Damon.
they just blame for things he has decided to do.
they blame for things they want.
i'm glad it's over.
for Damon's sake.
live it until the end,
Damon.

R.I.P GORILLAZ.

Damon and Jamie should read these forums to see how many people LOVE Gorillaz music and how many fans they are letting down saying NO MORE MUSIC......also i hope the soundtrack will have all new music not all of their music they already released......
You know, I keep thinking about the Gshop and all the stuff they're putting out this fall. I'm sure they love all this money coming in. That tells them how many Gorillaz fans there are out there. I'm not sure he's completely accurate about no more music EVER - or, he'll most likely "change his mind" when his current projects are over... He is rather fickle.
