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."

I hope they don't.
If it's shit, I'll never forgive them.
Whahahaha, somehow this sounds familiar! But if this film is going to be made it's more then I could hope for... Terry Gilliam, yay!! =D

I'm getting sick of Damon's new band... I swear- if he leaves Blur behind in the dust, you'll have one very pissed man right here. Same goes for Gorillaz as well- though I can't imagine that Damon would stop Gorillaz music. It was way too successful with many many fans.

To me it looks like Damon and Jamie having a (mental) fight. I mean Demon is talking all the time in the interview about his new good (best) fried Simonon and about the 'magic' that happend between them. What about the 'magic' between Jamie and Damon ?????????? Like Damon is the only one who created Gorillaz. We never hear anything of Jamie....
i like gorillaz *a lot* im not happy with the news that there may not be a 3rd album, but as an adult i can deal with it and move on, unlike some of the silly children that use this site an bitch about the fact that damon may feel tired or over worked and want a break for a while, hes also got another new band dont forget, which now makes 3. put yourself in his shoes and realise how much pressure is put on you to put music out there *good quality i might add*
so grow up
get over it
and enjoy what we already have :) 2 quality albums, dvd's a book and a great fun website

O Rly?

1 - This is phase 2, I've heard they're working on phase 2.5 which is also a haitus type thing.

2 - I could see this movie, if this is true anyway, on the big screen though it will most likely be on dvd instead.

3 - You kind of have to wonder if they truly are giving this up, I think this is the second interview (correct me if I'm wrong) where they said this was the end. It's been months already and all that's really happened is The Studios is in ruins much like Noodles room. Maybe they'll come back if this is the end, maybe they won't, who knows?

For all you people who keep spamming, typing in caps, freaking out in general: Stop it already. If it ends, it ends. There's nothing you can do about it. We still have the music they've already put out, we still have the characters, the swag, the unforgettable qoutes and concerts and everything else. Yes, I'll be sad to see them go, but I still love the music.

I'm sure they'd want to end on a really good note, which Demon Days' successfulness provided for them. We'll just have to wait and see how they feel after their other projects are over. They can always count on the Gorillaz fans if they need more money rolling in! Even after years of dormancy. I sure hope they don't end up dropping this movie thing! It'll be cool!

We don't know the future of gorillaz whether they will be gone or not . Just be patient people all of u guys saying stupid theories just stop it already . U make me wanna vomit . Anyways i like i said maybe there will be a phase 3 someday but right now there isn't one . Right now damon is just sick of this shit that's happening to him already . In like four years he might change his mind of the "we are not doing gorillaz music" . Who knows? He might bring gorillaz back in like 4 years for something else like a television show or something . So stop feeling sorry for the dude he's has alot of things in his mind . Sure he may say lies that are true or not but he's not in the mood to make gorillaz music for now . Since they were popular in phase 2 . So people just be patient for now stop saying shit about damon is a lazy ass or damon hates gorillaz . Right now he's just doing what he can .So this is all i'm saying

ps : Stop saying be a hero its annoying shit
One more thing think about it before u post something retarded

It's understandable that they want to end the band part since Damon is the only permanent musician of the band and the others are just collaborators. I mean if u look at the collaborators list in the biography section u can see how many members there are in each phase. I mean, it's probably really difficult gathering all those artists for a single album and try to think of who will replace them on the next one.
I'm gonna try not to get my hopes up too high.
If after all this time of talk about the movie, Damon still says without a hint of doubt that there will be a film, then there probably will be. Jamie already has the script afterall. Oh and Melinda, try taking your own advice about making retarded posts. The people here aren't making theories about the band ending, they're just reading the news. As I said, Damon can't go back on his word forever.
FUCK U ASSHOLE !!!!!!!!!
GO FUCK A CAT FOR ALL I CARE!!!!!!!

for everyone that is all "EH! no more music!" you seem to have forgotten one important thing about movies. THEY NEED SOUNDTRACKS. which means, music. there you go.
In all likelihood the El Manana video was a signal that the band was going to end.

WOULDN'T U AGREE?
I hope murdoc kicks damon's lying ass outta here saying stuff of "we are gonna end gorillaz music"
