Hollywood making Milli Vanilli movie

Thu Feb 15, 2:58 AM ET

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Disgraced pop duo Milli Vanilli will soon get a movie made about their less-than-spectacular career, following in the cinematic steps of such icons as Ray Charles and Johnny Cash.

Hollywood trade paper Daily Variety reported in its Thursday issue that Universal Pictures is developing a film about the lip-synching combo, who lost their coveted Grammy for best new artist in 1990 when it emerged that they had never sung on their records.

The project will be written and directed for the General Electric Co.-controlled studio by Jeff Nathanson, who previously wrote the
Leonardo DiCaprio crime caper "Catch Me If You Can." He has secured the cooperation of Milli Vanilli alumnus
Fabrice Morvan, who has been pursuing a comeback for years, as well as the estate of his colleague, Rob Pilatus, who died of a overdose in 1998.

"I've always been fascinated by the notion of and frauds, and in this case, you had guys who pulled off the ultimate con, selling 30 million singles and 11 million albums and then becoming the biggest laughing-stocks of pop entertainment," the paper quoted Nathanson as saying.

Yeah. I think if I made a list of true stories that don't deserve a movie, this would have been in there somewhere. ;-)

I hate to admit this, but I loved that CD when I was in high school. I would probably watch the movie on DVD.

Why would anyone in their right mind support any more of their nonsense?

Will the movie feature actors with dubbed voices?

It was the biggest music con ever and nobody but me thinks that would make an interesting story? They also sold 11,000,000 copies of that album, so I know I'm not the only one here that liked it.

I thought they were stupid/bad when I was in Jr. High and I thought they were stupid when they announced it was all a scam.

I think it is still stupid that people responsible for the scam are trying to make a buck and also that there are people out there who want to relive the scam.

I agree that the story is interesting, but I'd much rather see just about anything else at the movie theater instead. I saw parts of the VH1 special and that was about all I needed. Never liked the album either.

I will admit that my first concert was New Kids on the Block though. Hey, a girl gave me one of her tickets, OK? :-b
