If you were not aware, for the past couple of years the guys of Screeching Weasel had been working with a film production company to create a Screeching Weasel documentary of sorts.
It has been quite awhile since this idea came to fruition, and now it seems that the film is back at square one.
A couple of hours ago the band posted a statement on Facebook detailing why the documentary has come to a stand still.
Read the entire statement here.
Hey gang, a few of you have been asking about the SW documentary we’ve been working on for a while now. We hadn’t heard anything from the crew for months so Owen e-mailed them in June to ask what’s up and they indicated that they’re bummed out about the film and don’t really want to do it anymore. Which is just as well because they were making a film that was very different from the one they agreed to make when we first spoke 2 1/2 years ago. They kept telling me one thing and doing another, so I only agreed to continue with the project in April of last year when they gave me final cut approval. Now they’re saying they can’t make the film if I have final cut approval. I wish they’d told me that before signing the agreement – it would’ve saved everybody a lot of time and headaches. The final straw came when the assistant director of the film started making snide comments about me and the band right here on our Facebook page. That tells you everything you need to know about what kind of movie they’ve been making. I imagine this is what high school would’ve been like if I’d actually attended more than occasionally. Sorry to have gotten everybody’s hopes up. I thought we were all on the same page. I was wrong.Add Screeching Weasel to My Radar
