This month, the indie director Alex Ross Perry staged an unlikely musical theater present in New York: Slanted! Enchanted!: A Pavement Musical. The manufacturing is a part of an unorthodox function movie on the beloved indie-rockers, based on a profile on this week’s New Yorker. Although particulars are skinny, the film will reportedly combine footage from the musical and its creation with parts of biopic and documentary.
The movie is reportedly based mostly on an obscure directive from Stephen Malkmus, who, as profile author Hannah Seidlitz stories, “mentioned he wasn’t all in favour of hiring a documentary filmmaker. He needed to rent a screenwriter. However he didn’t need a screenplay.” Perry, whose résumé consists of Pavement’s “Harness Your Hopes” video and an array of beguiling motion pictures starring Elisabeth Moss, determined to write down one thing “authentic, ridiculous, actual, faux, idiotic, cliché, illogical,” he mentioned. “You’re taking the Todd Haynes Bob Dylan film, the Scorsese documentary, the Pennebaker documentary, and the film Dylan himself directed that everybody hates [Renaldo and Clara], and put all of them in a blender.” For now, no launch date has been set.
