After Roger Waters’ current tour behind ‘The Wall,’ Pink Floyd fans will have another chance to revisit the landmark album. Producer Andy Harries, who is best known for 2006’s ‘The Queen,’ is working on making film based on the children’s choir who sang ‘Another Brick in the Wall Part II.’
The movie will focus on the life of music teacher Alun Renshaw and his students, who sang the hauntingly famous chorus to the 1979 hit. Renshaw, who wanted to try something new when he arrived at the Islington Green School in the late ’70s, ended up getting fired after having his pupils sing the controversial lyrics.
The currently untitled film will be “‘Dead Poets Society’ meets ‘School of Rock,'” Harries said, and first-time writer Steve Thompson will pen the script. While Harries has optioned Renshaw’s story, he has yet to get a green light from Pink Floyd for the song rights.
