If you have dry eyes after watching the [email protected] chorus do Coldplay's Fix You, then you are a cold, heartless jerk. The performance is part of a documentary that follows a group of senior citizen's as they perform throughout the country. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Working Title Films recently purchased the [email protected] documentary with plans on adapting it into a feature film.
The documentary was originally broadcast in the U.K. on Channel 4. The film revolves around a group of seniors who perform new versions of old classics by the Clash, Talking Heads and Jimi Hendrix, just to name a few. The group has traveled the world under the banner of the [email protected] Chorus for almost twenty-five years.
No writer has yet been assigned to the project. There is no word on when the film will go into production.
