The Who Call Quadrophenia Sequel An ‘Attempt To Cash In’
12 June 2016 Music News
It’s fair to say that Roger Daltrey and Pete Townshend aren’t going to be heading off to the cinema to watch the planned sequel for Quadrophenia any time soon.
The sequel To Be Someone was announced last month, and it’s since been reported that Daniels, Willcox, Wingett and Laird would reprise their roles.
However, The Who have distanced themselves from the film.
The band 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.
“The new film doesn’t feature Sting, Leslie Ash or Ray Winstone from the original, let alone any words or music from The Who.
“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.”
