Can you believe the film is almost 30 years old?

You know any musicians? After TFAoBG, we need to write Scanners: The Musical Stage Spectacular!


I don't know any but a friend works at a radio station so he would.

You gotta love that! Very Happy


i really love how so much of the story is told through the music in this film, and that's not something you'd think of right away when talking about Scanners

I dunno... Cronenberg/Shore always seem to really have a powerful under current in their musical collaborations. Then again, most of them sound so depressing and sinister.

I don't think I've ever seen any of the sequels, but I saw a few Trancers movies.

You adapt the story and I'll write the lyrics, then we need someone to put them to music.
