Beach Boys, The Musical?

It worked for [lastfm]ABBA[/lastfm], with Mamma Mia. It worked for [lastfm]Billy Joel[/lastfm] with “Movin’ Out.” It’s even worked for world artist [lastfm]Fela Kuti[/lastfm] with last year’s brilliant “Fela!” Now, it looks like the [lastfm]Beach Boys[/lastfm] are getting their own musical – and it’s going straight to the silver screen!

As as-yet-untitled movie will be a fictional story with [lastfm]Beach Boys[/lastfm] music as inspiration (and, of course, performances). The rights to the film belong to Fox 2000 and someone who knows the Boys well … John Stamos, who has played percussion for the [lastfm]Beach Boys[/lastfm] in the past, including banging on bongos in the video for “Kokomo.”

The 50th anniversary of the formation of the [lastfm]Beach Boys[/lastfm] comes in 2011. There is still no word on the rumored tour.

What songs would you like to see in a [lastfm]Beach Boys[/lastfm] movie? And do these “jukebox musicals,” where the story is told around one artist’s music, appeal to you?

    “SURFER GIRL” was the greatest!!! Also love “I Get Around”, “In My Room”, “Barbara Ann”, and so many many more! They made at least 2 TV-movies on the Beach Boys in years past, and I taped them both, but they’re probably unplayable by now. So I would LOVE to see a major movie made out of their story, with a DVD release. Their music is timeless, and their story is fascinating!
