Film based on Pink Floyd song in the works

Producer Andy Harries (“The Queen”) is developing a film based on Pink Floyd’s 1979 hit “Another Brick in the Wall”.

The film therefore won’t chronicle the life and times of the band, but revolve “around the schoolchildren who appear on the track, and their music teacher Alan Renshaw”, says Deadline.

The story, likened to “Dead Poet’s Society” and “School of Rock”, will tell “the life story of music teacher Alan Renshaw who arrived at a struggling north London comprehensive (public) school in the late 70s, determined to shake things up. His class eventually ends up singing the chorus on the Pink Floyd track – whose controversial lyrics, flicking a V-sign at authority, end up getting Renshaw sacked.”

First-time writer Steve Thompson is writing the script. Harries is yet to snag the rights to the song yet…. so the film mightn’t even happen.
