The Milli Vanilli Movie (Not Kidding)

Seriously, the Milli Vanilli movie sounds like the best idea Hollywood has had in six decades.

Variety reported today that Jeff Nathanson is penning the script and directing the film for Universal. Who better to do a movie about the biggest chicanery in pop history than the guy who wrote Catch Me If You Can?

Hot: "He has secured the cooperation of Milli Vanilli alumnus Fabrice Morvan, who has been pursuing a comeback for years...." Well, this ought to take care of it.

Meanwhile, if I'm not mistaken (never!), the very first VH1 Behind The Music was on Milli Vanilli, back in 1998.

    I see Taye Diggs and Sinitta in the lead roles, and Allison Janney as Diane Warren.

    And I thought the last poll was difficult!

    Rutger Hauer is a dead ringer to play Frank Farian.

    I was thinking Taye Diggs and Nelly Furtado as Rob and Fab, though Sinitta could be the understudy...or Downtown Julie Brown in the scene where lip-syncing is revealed on the Club MTV tour.

    Poster Girl, all roads lead to Fergie.

    Oh goodness, I have to admit that I love Milli Vanilli.....but why on Earth do they need a movie!

    This was the most exciting news of my Friday work day. Would you believe my mother (!) heard about it on the radio and rang me up at work to spill the news. I actually may even whip out the 7" records of "Blame It On The Rain" and that other one they did to do the housework to tomorrow morning.

    Will they mention the release as "The Real Milli Vanilli" in this film? Surely I didn't dream that as a child, right? I distinctly remember seeing a clip of it on a Saturday morning music show, and it doing absolutely nothing on our charts in Oz.

    Which is saying something seeing as it takes about 2 sales to crack our top 10. Maybe it was 5 back then.

    JULIE BROWN!! God love her. And if we're getting Sinitta involved, surely we can have a scene where the 'nilli are in a swimming pool and their good Italian friend Sabrina's tits are falling out.

    Next years DreamGirls. Without a doubt. Throw in a American Idol flopstar and we'll be drinking bubbly before you can say Solange Knowles Knowles Knothing.


    Jason thanks for your comments on my blog. *Hugs you around the waste area*

    LOL @ the Rutger Hauer comment.

    Reminds me of being an exchange student in 1989 in Brigton.
    My host mother was a big Rutger Hauer fan. She was a single parent with 2 kids and they only had 2 video tapes.

    One was Dirty Dancing which the daughter played every morning and the other was some film with Rutger Hauer. Probably for lonely nights when the poor divorced mum felt ...erm lonely.

    So basically you're telling us she did the finger jam to The Hitcher?

    Adem, there was indeed The Real Milli Vanilli released. Reading about them on Wikipedia was kind of interesting (I linked their entry up in the first mention of their name in the post). It says that their first single off the second album started to get lots of airplay, just before the scandal broke. Granted, anyone can write stuff on Wikipedia and it's hardly accurate, but I don't remember that song they mentioned being played here at all...
