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.

Would you like to see one? I know I would, if they did it right.
It couldn't be a long one though, given the amount of public knowledge on andrews life.
if so, what would you like to see in the film? Who do you think could portray Mr. Von? What about the marx and hussey?
I've been thinking about it, and I could see one actually being quite entertaining in a Velvet Goldmine meets Withnail and I sorta way. :lol:

"When the legend becomes fact, print the legend."

A biopic of :von: should go totally overboard. Portray him as popular mythology has him, milk all the cliches and myths as much as possible, and blow the tiniest rumours totally out of proportion.

That's the only way to do it.

Can Chris Corner act?

Wait. JOHNNY DEPP. It would be hilarious!

Alfie Allen would have the cheekbones... and the teeth... he's way too burly, though.

(all of these are a similar height. Yes, I checked.)

Oh! Burn Gorman! Bit too tall, though...

No, exactly like that. It should be gonzoid, overblown, bombastic, pretentious, and if Bruce Willis plus explosions don't appear at least 5 times then somebody isn't doing their job.

Oh dear, the puns thread has started leaking. Soon all threads are going to be puns based on TSoM lyrics/titles.

At first I thought it was you behind this, @Lyanvis Aberrant, but then I noticed the alleged height of the subject and wondered if :von: was funding a vanity project.

Bloody hell you found that quick. Yeah, I'm behind that. It's for a friends film making portfolio and I'm producing. And yeah, I didn't really think the hight would matter too much. I don't want to stop people from auditioning just coz they're not midgets :lol:

No pool tables in the Fav any more. I don't know how long it is since you were there but it's unrecognisable now compared to what it was like in the early 90s.

Good luck with the project and well done for being prepared to have a go. Any chance we'll get to see it when it's done ?

Well, at least someones showing an ounce of possitivity. Yes, it's gonna be on youtube. Just bare in mind, at the moment all we're making is a trailer, just to get the interest up enough to get enough people in on making the bloody film.

@LyanvisAberrant I don't think anyone realised from your original post that this was an actual project, rather than a theoretical fantasy, hence some of the more flippant answers. Looking forward to seeing the trailer. Will you be using :von: quotes for the voice-over ?
