Sisters/AE biopic

THE place for your Sisters-related comments, questions and snippets of Sisters information. For those who do not know, The Sisters of Mercy are a rock'n'roll band. And a pop band. And an industrial groove machine. Or so they say. They make records. Lots of records, apparently. But not in your galaxy. They play concerts. Lots of concerts, actually. But you still cannot see them. So what's it all about, Alfie? This is one of the few tightly-moderated forums on Heartland, so please keep on-topic. All off-topic posts will either be moved or deleted. Chairman Bux is the editor and the editor's decision is final. Danke.

Alright, well, this is the project.

It's called The Damage Done, it's gonna be 10 - 15 minutes long, It's about the formation of the sisters, and the time up till Ben Gunn left.

The first stage of the project is to make a 3-4 minute trailer, just to garner enough interest on the bloody thing.

We've cast Gary and Ben, got our eye on a few people for craig, no idea for andy, we have our claire, and we have our spiggy.
Sounds very positive. Are you basing your Claire on the 2011 photo posted at your request recently in a different thread (when everyone thought you were a stalker rather than a casting agent) ? If so, remember that she was peroxide blonde back in the Gunn era.

I also second Ben Whishaw (not that I think you'd be able to afford him ;)
All the best for your project, L.A.!

yeah, I did come of a little strange, didn't I? :lol:
Urm, well, kinda going on a bit what-I've-heard about her, a picture where she could be seen in the audience of an early gig, and that recent one, yes.

The trouble with finding an andy good enough is the voice. It's such a recognizable thing that we don't want to get it wrong.

Do you meant the speaking voice ? Do they not do "Estuary" as one of the standard regional accents at Drama school anymore ??

Firstly, this, and also it should be possible for an actor to listen to a ton of interviews and imitate the guy. I mean, *I* can imitate Andy's idiolect*, and I'm not even British.

*this holds up until someone asks me to prove it, so please don't

I don't know if they still teach Estuary, I've not been to acting school. I'm a director, sound guy, and producer. :lol:

And yeah, I suppose, but every one that has auditioned has a voice just to high.

Think we might have found our andy. Isn't that exiting. Anyone mind if I posted progress reports and fact checking here from now on?
Also, for the sake of Telling the single from the Movie, Project name is now "The Damage Is Done" instead.
Would I be able to post pictures of actors to get opinions from the experts? :)

Wow, seems like a great project!
Wish you the best of luck on doing it!

(But I agree, a totally blown out of perspective version would be hilarious too :D )

Alright, well, this is (could be) our gary. https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/ ... 7157ba570d

Opinions? He's lost weight since this was taken, and has aged a year and a bit :lol: but the same person.
He's 6 foot 6, if that helps.

Edit: and obviously he's gonna shave :lol:

I'll leave the commenting on the suitability of your Gary to the elder members and just put forward that if anyone ever makes a Sisters biopic in the style of I'm Not There, Kristen Stewart would also make a fine Von ;)

If it goes well and you make a sequel, you could get him to shave his head and he'd be a dead ringer for Chris Catalyst.

Looking forward to seeing the trailer. Will you be using :von: quotes for the voice-over ?
It was the intention to not mention the project, people have a tendency to put me down when I do so I tend not to tell people about it until it's done. Von quotes will be used in the script, probably not going to be using pre recorded stuff though, we just need to find a :von: good enough.
In my (in my dreams) Andrew Eldritch bio pic Kevin Bacon plays Von. I think he could look the part with a bit of make up and I believe he could capture Von's sense of humour. I have a notebook of ideas, I'd be happy to contribute them if you're prepared to make that call to Mr Bacon. :D
If you're in the UK you may have seen Kevin Bacon in his latest ad where he's practising his "INCOMING". Two fingers and a two note rising raspberry to you lot ;D 8)
