Damon: "Gorillaz movie may include musical numbers" / upcoming Wired interview

Damon Albarn, Gorillaz co-creator, recently gave an interview to the magazine Wired, to be published in a forthcoming issue of the magazine. On the magazine's website the writers have a blog and the writer who did the interview has posted some details about what Damon said about the Gorillaz movie during the interview. The relevant extract is:-

"Even though the Gorillaz have officially made their last record, front man Damon Albarn confirms that a movie is in the works. During an interview I did with Albarn for an upcoming piece in the magazine, the Brit popstar turned most wanted musician confirmed that the Gorillaz will be working with director Terry Gilliam starting this September. "It'll be totally animated with a full score," he says. He also hinted that it may include musical numbers. Gorillaz meets West Side Story? Hmmm... curious. More info as it trinkles in."
