To many it might seem like a bad joke, but Hollywood seems to be just nuts about Frank Sidebottom. Frank tells the story of a young musician who encounters Chris Sievely AKA Frank Sidebottom, and ends up on a journey he will never forget.
Frank Sidebottom would have been thrilled to see a portion of his story played out on the big screen, in the movie Frank is played by Michael Fassbender. The movie also stars Maggie Gyllenhaal, Scoot McNairy and Domhnall Gleason.
I personally was not a fan of Frank Sidebottom, until catching his program on Channel M in 2009, when I suddenly discovered that the character was actually a genius. Sidebottom had just started to become popular again for the first time since the 1980's, when he tragically died in 2010.
Frank is due for release in 2014.
