quadropheniaposterWhen I posted the story about the ‘Quadrophenia’ sequel about a week ago, everything seemed well and good. Well, according to a story posted by NME that seems to be far from the case. In a statement, The Who’s manager Bill Curbishley has said: “As far as the group and original producer Bill Curbishley are concerned, the new film is a blatant attempt to cash in on the original film’s enduring popularity.”

Curbishley added: “Quadrophenia is a significant and influential film based on The Who’s music, not some Carry On franchise. Any follow-up could only be made by the authors of the original and would need to be worthy of the name. This karaoke sequel announced recently would be totally ridiculous.”

The Who also commented saying: “The new film doesn’t feature Sting, Leslie Ash or Ray Winstone from the original, let alone any words or music from The Who.”

A final statement by Curbishley read: “For the avoidance of doubt, this project isn’t endorsed by The Who, Who Films, Universal or any of the other rights owners of the original.”

Do you think there’s still hope for the film? I guess well find out in 2017.
