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."

For real, like, make up your mind. One minute you're like "DAMON'S ENDING THE GORILLAZ WAH WAH." then you're like "Oh, who knows what they're doing next?" then it's like "GORILLAZ ARENT GOING TO END YOU COCKFUCK."

What, do you have a hormonal imbalance? Are you 13? Emo? Yes, there needs to be a good post about Gorillaz and la la la. It SEEMED when I first originally read this article that it was a good thing. They're coming out with a movie, whoohoo!

Somewhere along the way, some asshat (probably you) came along and said "GORILLAZ ARE ENDING THE MOVIE IS A RUMOUR I HATE DAMON." If it weren't for Damon (and yes, Jamie) there would be no Gorillaz.

PERSONALLY -- I think the whole thing where Damon is saying the band is ending is just a publicity stunt so Murdoc can cuss him out. You know, rivals and all that happy crap. But, then again, who knows what's going to happen? None of us can claim to know, we can only speculate, but I don't believe that it's fair for one person to try and take all sides of the argument. It's like rooting for two teams, and calling the winning team your favourite. You can't be on all sides of the argument and claim to believe all three. I belive that they're going to do what they did last time -- take a little break and then phase three. But, who the hell really knows except Jamie and Damon.

Now, I ask of you, kindly, to make up your mind. Do you think it'll happen, or are the Gorillaz dead to you, as you oh so previously posted in a flair of over dramatic words? If they're dead to you -- go away. There is no need for someone who is so against the band that they're filling up pages and pages worth of comments.

If you think they'll make it, great! Wonderful! You've stated your opinion. If someone wants to argue with you, or if there's a topic worth posting several pages worth of comments about, so be it. Otherwise, say your opinion and quietly leave. You'll be saving a bunch of people headaches and livejournal some server space.

And another thing -- telling people to contact a CARTOON BAND via Quija board is not only impossible, but dangerous. And besides, you can't contact a living person via Quija board, they're still alive and their soul still inhabits their body. Trying to contact a living being through a Quija board will probably lead to dire consequences. =)
yada yada yada don't give a rat's ass . Ur the one who's a dickhead not me

Hard to believe you're the same age as me when you can barely navigate livejournal and have the spelling and grammar of an 8 year old.

But, glad to see you've made up your mind.

I love how you all freak out over one little virtual band.
"murdoc shud kick damons ass"
"ya letz killz damon he suxxors!!'1"
Jesus. Damon and Jamie Hewlett are the guys that made Gorillaz born. Its their band, let them do what they want to do. And plus, so what if they break up. So what if they lie about making a movie again. Maybe they have budget problems. Bad scripts. Maybe just a cancelled idea! And also, whats so bad about Terry Gilliam. :\ Geez, all of you seem to be retards that care about cartoons a bit too much.
[ex: "2dluvrforlife says: 2d is ma boifrend not urs". True quote from a chatroom D:]
I heard Gorillaz was making an anime. I heard they were making other things for their brand too. If they cancel it; well, who cares?
Not me, thats for sure.

Hey guys! You'd better take a break from this current Gorillaz future paranoia and check out what's been updated at the official Gorillaz fansite! It's some quotes from this Q magazine:

Q Bits & Bobs (3/10)

Gorillaz' Demon Days has been proclaimed by this month's Q Magazine as one of the 20 greatest albums of the past 20 years. Here's what they had to say about the band's latest long-player:

"Surpassing even Blur's creative and commercial peaks, Damon Albarn threw the London Community Gospel Choir, Shaun Ryder and Dennis Hopper into the mix on this modern classic. Also introduces the wider world to Danger Mouse, a talent you suspect is just getting started."

They also give some glowing column inches to the band's new book, Rise of the Ogre (released 2 November), with this four-star review:

"Gorillaz might have been part-conceived as a means of stepping back from frontman chores but Damon Albarn has overcompensated everywhere else. Each Gorillaz project is more mind-bogglingly ambitious than the last. Accordingly, this autobiography is mammoth: generous in text and with Jamie Hewlett's wonderful artwork. From Murdoc's birth in 'the stinking borough of Stoke-on-Trent' to Gorillaz moving to LA's Mulholland Drive in 2002, the made-up band's made-up story - as 'told' to live drummer Cass Browne - is rendered in Spinal Tap richness. Music to the eyes. Essential Quote: 'The truth is cheaper than fiction' - Murdoc."

Not sure what Murdoc's going to make of all of this praise for Albarn in company but some fantastic reviews nonetheless!

~Signed, K~

Gorillaz might have a soundtrack to their movie . And people we are talking about murdoc 's quotes that isn't important right now . We suppose to be commenting on the movie not saying little stories about ourselves or gorillaz's .

melinda
Cool, a movie!
I'm not sad there ain't gonna be no more Gorillaz music. There's already been 2 albums, and plenty of B-Sides. They can't carry on forever, no matter how much we want them too.
I'm just greatful for what he have, and 2 more things (book and movie) we can remember them by.
The Gorillaz saved me from listening to crap stuff like S Club Juniors. Now I listen to them, and other rock bands like Lost Prophets. I owe the people behind them my soul, no matter what they've said to annoy us.
I'm glad they all have one last huge project to do, and I think it will be the best one so far.

Btw, I meant we have, not he have. O_o
we might have a phase 3 !!!!!!!! SHUT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

melinda
I'm a huge fan of the gorillaz and all too, but let's not fight and argue about it.

After all, it's anyone guess how it could go.
Maybe they'll end it here, with the book and the movie.
Maybe they'll pick it up again later.

It's quite pointless to argue about something you have no control over.
Gorillaz Film?
that sounds tasty.
its also bull that he'll shtop the music. ok, so he may be all...goody...hating celbrities or whatever but money is money.
is money

gorillaz animation is always stoopid. its always just like bad crap with the band members hanging out. the good thing about the gorillaz was the music. the animated idea was cool, but i really like the music. on its own, it stands out. the movies gunna suck.
