    Default Satan is Real movie

    What do we think? I think it one of the more filmable music bios and the casting seems fine.

    I would be quite interested in seeing this, since quite a few folks in my part of the country crossed paths with Charlie over the years. Wonderful singer and a great rhythm guitar player. Not the boy next door from Mayberry, though.

    Is it just my confirmation bias, or do a lot of brother combos have a “good” one and a “bad” one?

    And if you don't go see it, you'll never know. So I think you're committed!

    I must be the odd guy out. I do not generally watch shows or read books about actors or musicians lives. Frankly, I couldn't care less and most of it is brought to us third and fourth hand. I just want to be entertained by them not life coached or learn about them. None of them interest me that much.

    This does seem interesting. I find the topic found in the title intriguing, also. Somewhat extreme views but who knows until we see it? I will make a point of seeing this for both the music aspect as well as the perspectives on religion it may explore. Thanks for the post.

    I like to watch movies and read books about lives of musicians. No different than reading about Louis and Clark, or Robert Peary and the North Pole. Life is interesting.

    If anyone’s interested here’s a list of songs, Im not sure if they actually wrote them themselves, but song lyrics can sometimes be interesting to get a good idea of where they’re at:

    That was a great book, I hope they stick to the way Charlie told it!

    Ethan Hawke produced a bio of the great TX songwriter Blaze Foley recently. It didn't get a whole lot of love at the box office - and I can see why... but that said, I thought it was a sweet film - a labor of love - and it worked for me.

    I have a good feeling about this project. Maybe Peter Sarsgaard and Maggie Gyllenhaal could appear as Bill and Bess, since they got all ready to play the role years ago. And as far as I know, they've kept up with their duo singing and playing.

    Sex, drugs, the coming of rock and roll, sibling rivalry, and some smoking hot music. What more could a movie ask for? I'm sure many country music stars will be begging to do a cameo in this film.

    I'm not sure that anyone has publicly reported the story of how the Monroe biopic fell apart. It involves folks including Finn Taylor, Peter Sarsgaard and Maggie Gyllenhaal, and others. T-Bone Burnett produced the soundtrack with the usual suspects, but that too remains unreleased - maybe unmastered? There are a lot of ways for a movie to not get made...

    But I thought it was recast with Michael Shannon?

    I hope they go with the way Ira saw it. He's the one who knew Satan was real! Charlie had to put up with Ira. As for their music, if you are a fan (and mandolin picker should be) then the Bear Family 8 CD box set is a must have for their complete works. And then you need to add Ira's one and only solo album recorded right before he died.

    It would be a cracker of a true-life story for a musical biopic — but I may have to step out for popcorn every time Ira throws a fit at his mandolin for going out of tune and stomps it to splinters on the spot! Seemed to happen pretty regularly in the book. I think they should put a disclaimer in the credits: “No real mandolins we’re harmed in the making of this motion picture.”

    It just disappears. A lot of press in 2010: google it. Then nothing.

    I suspect licensing got in the way. There was the Hendrix biopic with Andre 2000 that features no Hendrix music. It's, um... well, a film.

    I've been meaning to read the book for awhile now but I did enjoy the Cocaine and Rhinestones podcast episode on The Louvin Brothers. You can listen to the episode or read the transcript here:

    I don't think so. The soundtrack was finished and recorded and I don't think they'd have spent that money without clearing the music rights. I believe that Ronnie McCoury was the lead mandolin player on the soundtrack, if memory serves. I think it was disagreements between some combination of actors, producers, directors, writers.
